The US Census, what is it? And why should it matter? Every 10 years, the US Census provides a pathway for people to create a dialogue with the government. It allows them to have a voice, be properly represented, and fight for political recognition. Interested to see how this affects the lives of many? Join expert panelists as we explore how our contribution can create an impact on our nation.

Note: this event will be recorded via Zoom and is intended for public audiences.
