Panel Discussion: What Philanthropy Can Do for the 2020 Census and Opportunities for Action

Host Organization: Philanthropy Delaware


Accurate Census data is essential for the fair distribution of political representation at the national, state, and local level, and for the equitable allocation of government resources for funding for our local communities.

Explore ways in which the philanthropic sector can leverage resources to ensure the most accurate census information, so the voices of undercounted groups and regions are heard in the decades to come.

Panelists will provide concrete examples and resources to get involved now.
