TOMORROW at 2-3 PM Pacific: DOnetwork California Census Week of Action Twitter Chat!
September 10, 2020
As many of you may know, the time to respond to 2020 Census is coming to a close. For the disability community, this has been an impactful year — we’ve seen a major change to the process — the ability to respond online!
It’s also been a year of challenges with COVID-19 and the California wildfires. (Census data directly informs federal and state government on budget considerations for programs like FEMA and CalFire, so this data is especially important right now!)
Please join us on Friday, September 11, 2020 at 2:00-3:00 PM for a Twitter Chat to close out the California Census “Week of Action” — a push to two ensure that members of our community, our families, friends and loved ones are counted! We must make sure that #DisabilityCounts2020!
