The U.S. Census is a critical data tool that provides a resource designed to help community-based, regional, and statewide planning efforts. With the 2020 Census deadline on September 30th, learn what tools you need now to ensure a complete count in your community. This session will explore how planners engaged their communities and what tools they used to increase response rates and participation in Census taking, particularly during a pandemic. The session will also describe APA’s Census advocacy efforts at the federal level and opportunities for planners to increase advocacy for the Census and American Community Survey. The interactive panel will provide opportunities to learn from APA, the U.S. Census NY Regional Office, which covers most of Region 1, and a local community’s efforts. In less than 35 days, the 2020 census count will be closed. Is everyone in your community counted? Learn how to help increase the response rate, get better data, and enhance your community’s ability to have full representation and funding based on a full and accurate Census count. This will be a moderated panel with ample time for a participatory discussion with panelists. Join us on September 3 at 10 for the webinar.
1.5 CM credits!
