WEBINAR | The Final Countdown - Census Outreach and Litigation

Event Description

Online registration is now closed. If you would still like to join, please email kerbach@mnbars.org by 9:30 AM on September 9.

To date, about 28% of Minnesotan households have yet to be counted for purposes of the U.S. 2020 Census. These numbers include historically undercounted communities, such as immigrant communities. On August 3, the U.S. Census Bureau announced its field data collecting will close on September 30, 2020, a month early. Outreach efforts have been hampered by the COVID-19 pandemic. Litigation is pending that challenges a memorandum issued in July by the Trump administration to exclude undocumented persons from the Census count. The Census outcome will determine how federal funds are distributed over the next decade and the number of congressional districts in each state. We are in the last push to get folks counted! Presenters will cover topics including local census outreach efforts and challenges, the status of litigation, and how to ensure our clients are counted.
