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.


Join ABFE, A Philanthropic Partnership for Black Communities in partnership with the Funders Committee for Civic Participation (FCCP) and Neighborhood Funders Group (NFG), 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.

Featured Speakers:

Moderated by: Keesha Gaskins-Nathan, Director for Democratic Practice – United States, Rockefeller Brothers Fund

Panelists: Desmond Meade, President of the Florida Rights Restoration Coalition (FRCC) Nana Gyamfi, Executive Director, Black Alliance for Just Immigration (BAJI)


As with all FCCP events, the subject matter is strictly limited to non-partisan discussion as outlined in the agenda.
