California Census 2020 Statewide Funders' Initiative (Census 2020)
Please join Napa Valley Community Foundation, Silicon Valley Community Foundation and the League of California Community Foundations for a luncheon training facilitated by Grantmakers Concerned with Immigrants and Refugees on how North Bay philanthropy, nonprofits and businesses can engage in the 2020 Census.
Immigrants want to take part in the census, a basic exercise in our democracy. But many are afraid.
These reports are the first two of a planned six on the consequences of adding the citizenship question to Census 2020 and other barriers to a complete count.
Members of the Democracy Funders Collaborative Census Subgroup will be presenting their findings from get-out-the-count messaging research they conducted to identify messages that resonate with hard-to-count communities.
The Counting for Dollars program aims to understand the extent to which domestic financial assistance programs will rely on data from the 2020 Census to distribute federal monies to state, localities and households across the nation, and the impact of the accuracy of the 2020 Census on the geographic distribution of federal funds.
