The Constitution requires that a census of all US residents be taken every ten years in order to determine each state’s number of Congressional representatives and the apportionment of billions of federal dollars (including adult education funding). This webinar will review how the 2020 Census works, why it matters, challenges that threaten a full population count, and how adult education programs and libraries can help adults understand and participate in the 2020 Census.

Presenters: 

Judy Mortrude, Center for Law and Social Policy

Deborah Kennedy, National Coalition for Literacy

Kristin Lahurd, American Library Association

Heather Ritchie, Carlos Rosario International Public Charter School

Andy Nash, New England Literacy Resource Center at World Education
