The 2020 census faces unprecedented challenges that may lead to an unfair and inaccurate count for Colorado. Data from the census will be used to determine apportionment and redistricting for congress, state legislatures, city councils, school districts and many more. It will also determine how more than $800 billion in federal funds are distributed to states and localities, impacting not only local and state governments, but also businesses, nonprofits and foundations.
It is critical that we count everyone for our communities to be visible and thrive. There have been slight changes to the form and how we will respond. Many communities are fearful of government, do not trust the process or feel left out of policy and decision making. Join Together We Count as they go over the challenges for the upcoming census, as well as what is at stake, the timeline and how we can all ensure that we reach a fair and accurate count. Lunch sponsored by St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church. RSVP by August 16 at 303-951-5228.
