As part of SV2’s Advocacy Learning Series, SV2 seeks to offer an in-depth opportunity for learning about the 2020 Census with a particular focus on Silicon Valley, the Bay Area and California. Join us for an interactive evening with California State Assemblymember Marc Berman, Chair of the Assembly Select Committee on the Census, and Perla Ni, founder and CEO of Community Connect Labs and GreatNonprofits, and SV2 Partner, Anne Im, Program Officer, Silicon Valley Community Foundation leading immigration and census initiatives, and Nick Kuwada, Director, Census Project, Santa Clara County’s Executive Office. This expert lineup will share their perspectives and offer opportunities for all to engage in dialogue about this timely, mission-critical topic.
- Why is the Census important? What is at stake?
- What would constitute a successful 2020 Census?
- What are the key enablers and barriers for a successful Census? What factors are most important and why?
- What is already being done and by whom? What still needs to happen?
