The New England Literacy Resource Center at World Education and the National Coalition for Literacy invite you to a webinar on
Preparing Adult Education Programs for the 2020 Census
June 4, 2:00-3:15 (EDT)
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.
There is high risk of a serious undercount of immigrant residents. Please join us to find out what we can to do combat that risk.
