Democracy After Dark Presents: 2020 Census: History, Context, and How it Affects Arlington
January 28 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Every 10 years the US Census Bureau sets out to count every person in the United States and five territories. Mandated by the constitution, census data is used in research, to determine electoral districting, and is the basis for funding decisions benefiting every Arlington resident. In this panel discussion we’ll hear from policy makers and census experts and take questions on this important project.
Speakers include: Carly Bari, Partnership Specialist at the New York Regional Census Center, Michael D. Goodman, Professor of Public Policy and Executive Director of the Public Policy Center at UMass Dartmouth, and Kelsey Perkins, staff member at Representative Katherine Clark’s office. This event is co-sponsored by the Arlington Department of Planning and Community Development.
