Description

Greetings Colleague:

As 2017 came to a close, many of our organizations were already starting to prepare for the 2020 Census. Please join us!


The Center for Law and Social Justice and the DuBois-Bunche Center of Medgar Evers College, CUNY invite you to a leadership meeting of the newly organizedNYC Black Leadership Action Coalition for the 2020 Census ("NYC BLAC Census 2020"). This meeting will provide you, other leaders, and organizations that work closely with Black immigrant populations with the latest information regarding Census 2020. We will also strategize and plan outreach to historically “hard to reach communities” — our communities! Participants will brainstorm solutions to address high level concerns and plan collaborative efforts.
As you are aware:
  • Decennial census data is used to allocate an estimated $600 billion in federal assistance.
  • Many Black communities are considered by Census officials to be historically “Hard to Count” Communities.
  • Facts and shared information are the best antidotes to the widespread understandable fear of government at this time.

The leadership summit will take place on Wednesday, February 28, 2018 from 9:00 AM - Noon at 1534 Bedford Ave., 2nd Floor (between Eastern Parkway and Lincoln Place), Brooklyn, NY 11216 — the home of the Medgar Evers College School of Professional and Community Development. We need your input, please join us.

A light breakfast will be served.
