Everybody Counts: Our Voice, Our Power, Our Census 2020

Join ABFE, A Philanthropic Partnership for Black Communities in partnership with the Funders Committee for Civic Participation (FCCP) and Neighborhood Funders Group (NFG), on Thursday, July 25, 2019 at 1:00pm-2:30 EST as we explore why it's necessary for everyone to be counted in #Census2020. You don't want to miss this important conversation with funders and practitioners who are strategizing, investing, and organizing to ensure everyone is counted.

When you can see "2020" you have perfect vision. 2020 is also the year when the nation can create a more perfect vision for many years to come. Participation in the 2020 Census is one civic activity for communities to secure voice in our democratic processes and access to federal funding. But the fair allocation of political power and resources are not guaranteed. Communities of color, among other populations, are historically undercounted in the decennial Census. The addition of the digital self-response and the chilling impact of the current climate, put the count at risk. We must answer the call to mobilize and support trusted voices in communities. Our response is our responsibility.

Moderator:

Keesha Gaskins-Nathan, Program Director – Democratic Practice – United States
Rockefeller Brothers Fund

Panelists:

Desmond Meade, President
Florida Rights Restoration Coalition (FRRC)
Nana Gyamfi, Executive Director
Black Alliance for Just Immigration (BAJI
Sammy Nunez, Executive Director
Executive Director at Fathers & Families of San Joaquin
