About this event

What's Happening?

The nonprofit sector did incredible work to mobilize New York for a complete Census 2020 count. Please join Nonprofit New York, Hester Street, and civic engagement expert Meeta Anand for a public policy forum on shifting from census engagement to civic engagement. New York City’s 2021 municipal elections will be historic, with a new Mayor, Comptroller, Borough Presidents, and over 35 City Council seats. Panelists will share how nonprofits can re-engage community leaders, constituents, and networks from the 2020 Census to provide education and mobilization for civic engagement for the 2021 municipal elections. The forum will include a framework for nonprofit civic engagement and practical tools for nonprofits, including Hester Street’s Atas: Vote NYC mapping platform that uses census data for voter data, demographics, community assets, and polling locations across the five boroughs.
