ComNetworkSEATTLE: 2020 Census Communications Virtual Gathering
In these challenging and uncertain times, we need you to make sure everyone is counted in the 2020 Census.
Every 10 years in the United States, the national census takes place. A fair and accurate census is critical to our democracy. The results inform the distribution of vital government resources and political representation in our communities for years to come.
Join us for a virtual gathering with amazing speakers to explore how we, as communicators, can support a full census count.
