Preparations are underway for the upcoming 2020 Census which is critical in determining our representation in Congress and the amount of federal funding our state and local governments receive.
On Monday evening, the local chapter of the League of Women Voters hosted a public forum to educate residents on the Census. League president Gretchen Sabel moderated the event which included a former state legislator and civil rights attorney.
Andrew Virden from the state demographer's office laid out the scope of the 2020 Census and why it's important for everyone to participate.
The forum included a panel discussion and they even took questions from the audience. If you missed it, you can watch the League of Women Voters hour-long forum by clicking here.
