About the Program
The 2020 Census is fast approaching. With political representation and billions in federal funds on the line, the importance of an accurate count cannot be overstated. Is California prepared? This event will feature distinguished leaders and experts from the state and local levels, assessing readiness and discussing the actions needed to ensure an accurate census next year.
This project is supported with funding from the California Community Foundation, the California Endowment, the California Health Care Foundation, Silicon Valley Community Foundation, and Sunlight Giving.
