Webinar

Funders for LGBTQ Issues is pleased to co-sponsor this webinar with the Funders Committee For Civic Participation (FCCP) to share more about important milestones before and during the 2020 Census, and ways your foundation can support “Get Out the Count” activities, including participation in state and local Complete Count Committees.

Join us to learn more about important milestones before and during the 2020 Census, and ways your foundation can support “Get Out the Count” activities, including participation in state and local Complete Count Committees.

Funders will learn about:

  • Important decision-making points as the Census Bureau finalizes the 2020 census operational plan.
  • Key milestones in census preparations and implementation, including when the standards of collection of race and ethnicity data will be released, when local offices will open, and when address canvassing will begin.
  • What is already happening on the ground to ensure a fair and accurate census and how that informs your grantmaking timeline
  • How philanthropy can play a key role as a census partner and catalyst of statewide get-out-the-count activities
  • Effective ways philanthropy can influence the formation of effective and representative complete count committees at the state and local levels
