The 2020 Census is on track to be one of the most challenging censuses the United States has undertaken. Not only is it more difficult to take a full population count during an era of  greater mobility and growing, more complex communities, but changes to the upcoming census have complicated preparations. This census will be the first to be conducted largely online, and the inclusion of a controversial citizenship question remains a possibility. This webinar will explore the critical role that Complete Count Committees can play in working with local, trusted voices to provide information, guidance and support to ensure a complete and accurate count of your community, despite the threats that besiege the 2020 Census. Join Philanthropy Northwest in learning more about how your organizations can engage with Complete Count Committees.
