The decennial US Census data collection determines the resources and representation your community will receive for the next decade.  The high-profile argument over a potential citizenship question is expected to have a chilling effect on ‘hard to count’ population response rates, which include not only immigrants but also many of the people we serve. Family literacy and adult education agencies and staff can play a critical part in community efforts to bring out the count. The National Coalition for Literacy has made Census 2020 a priority. Come learn what’s happening, share your work and your concerns, and join forces to make sure your community gets its due.
