The ASUW Office of Government Relations and the U.S. Census Bureau will be hosting an information session about the 2020 Census to let the UW community know about what the Census is, why it is important, and how to make sure that students get counted! Over 10 billion dollars in federal funding is allocated based on Census results which is why it is critical to make an all-campus effort to ensure that the U-District is properly represented, as college students are historically undercounted in the Census.
We are hoping for attendees to be able to walk away being knowledgeable about the 2020 Census and encourage their organizations and communities to participate.
The info session will take place on Tuesday, March 10 in Gowen 301 from 7-8pm. We will have banh mi, spring rolls, and other snacks available for participants!
