2018 is a pivotal year on the road to the 2020 Census. Early field preparations have started; the ‘dress rehearsal’ will take place in Providence County, RI; and the Census Bureau must finalize counting methods and develop a multi-faceted communications plan. As the pace of census activities accelerates, we recap the major policy issues to watch in the coming months.
Whether a seasoned advocate or at a foundation determined to step into the civic engagement realm for the first time, start the new year with a refresher on the breadth of activities foundations can legally engage in and fund while remaining nonpartisan leading up to the 2018 election.
Watch this webinar from November 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.
FCCP and our affinity group partners held our October Election Series + First Monday Discussion around the political and funding landscape which funders can expect to see in the upcoming 2018 Elections.
