Funders Applaud Outcome on Citizenship Question Case, Remain Committed to 2020 Census
Bipartisan Bill Would Help Ensure Accurate Count By Extending Deadlines To Report Data, Complete Field Operations
Join Mission Investors Exchange on Tuesday, November 12, 2019 at 3 PM ET for a 90-minute webinar exploring why and how foundations and other impact investors are mobilizing to get out the count for the 2020 Census. This webinar will dive deep into these key areas:
The 2020 census has put many foundations on a state of high alert. Getting an accurate count on the census is important because the data collected is used to determine not only representation in Congress, but also the destination of federal dollars.
This webinar will share findings from new opinion research about using total population versus citizens of voting age when drawing district lines – and how to talk about this technical, yet important issue for communities and our democracy.
A Los Angeles Times op-ed by Christian Arana and Jacqueline Martinez Garcel of the Latino Community Foundation.
One year out, California ramps up its 2020 Census preparations in a state home to some of the nation’s hardest-to-count counties — including San Francisco.
The Census Bureau has proposed the addition of a Citizenship Status Question to the 2020 Census and indicated that data will be included in the transfer of census counts to states for the purposes of redistricting. During this webinar funders will learn how census data is used in congressional, state and local redistricting, and the impact of the U.S. Supreme Court case Evenwel v. Abbott; how efforts to draw out non-citizens or non-voters undermines one person, one vote, and the foundation of our democracy; and what needs to be done to ensure communities are represented.
