NYC Black Leadership Advisory Coalition for Census 2020 (NYC BLAC for Census 2020)
The Center for Law and Social Justice of Medgar Evers College, CUNY invites you to a leadership meeting of the newly organized NYC Black Leadership Action Coalition for the 2020 Census (“NYC BLAC Census 2020”). This meeting will provide you, other leaders, and organizations that work closely with communities African descent with the latest information regarding Census 2020. We will also strategize and plan outreach to historically “hard to reach communities” — our communities! Participants will brainstorm solutions to address high level concerns and plan collaborative efforts.
As you are aware:
- Decennial census data is used to allocate an estimated $675 billion in federal assistance.
- Many Black communities are considered by Census officials to be historically “Hard to Count” Communities.
- Facts and shared information are the best antidotes to the widespread understandable fear of government at this time.
The leadership summit will take place on Tuesday, March 20th, 2018 from 9:00 AM – Noon at 25 West 43rd St., 19th Floor, New York, NY 10036 — Murphy Institute of Worker Education and Labor Studies. We need your input. Please join us.
