The 2020 Census — Implications of Undercounting
Organizer: Reform Elections Now
Join a discussion of the 2020 Census and its probable impact on the next decade. How we count we count people during the Covid-19 pandemic could have a vast impact on our political system and economy. The Census determines both political representation and allocation of over $30 trillion of government spending over the next decade. Areas with substantial undercounts lose federal and state representation as well as funds for education, healthcare, and other services. We will focus on steps that can be taken now to ensure an accurate Census so that we do not have to spend the next decade bickering over disputed results.
