Title: We All Count! Census 2020
Description: When the U.S. Census Bureau conducts a census every ten years, it determines not only the number of people living in the United States. It also determines political representation and annual allocations of more than $675 billion in state and federal funding to communities throughout the United States.
YWCA USA’s CEO Alejandra Castillo and expert guest Natalie Cone, Manager for State Advocacy and Civil Engagement at YWCA USA, discuss the significance of undercounting and hard-to-count communities in the upcoming 2020 census, the Census Bureau’s commitment to participant safety, and why YWCAs across the country are arbiters for communities that have historically been left out.
