Description

RVA Table Talk - Access to Resources (Census)

A primary purpose of the US Census is to figure out due representation and resources for communities based on population size. Yet many groups are historically undercounted in the Census in ways that reduce the representation and resources allotted to them. You are invited to join in this RVA Table Talk to learn about the barriers, stereotypes, and distrust that can lead to an undercount in the Census and the ways we can help address this issue together.

This RVA Table Talk will be held 5:30-7:30pm on Wednesday, February 5, at the Weinstein Jewish Community Center. The evening will include facilitated table conversations around these issues, as well as a presentation on the history, purpose, and upcoming timeline for the Census and a panel discussion on the kinds of barriers that prevent people from being counted in the Census.

Presentation, “Census 101: What to Expect for the 2020 Census,” Tameka Jefferson & Justin Beck, Partnership Specialists, U.S. Census Bureau

Panel Discussion, “Census Undercount: Causes & Responses”

Each session focuses on a specific topic, and participants have the opportunity to share stories, perspectives, and ideas regarding issues facing the community.
