The Census is essential in determining the amount of funds appropriated to each area in the United States. For the first time ever, in 2020, the census will be taking place primarily online. Grow and Lead Community and Youth Development is a nonprofit in Marquette that has been appointed as one of the nationwide task forces entrusted to reach the "hard to count" populations spread across the Upper Peninsula. Come and learn why the census is directly connected to meeting people's basic needs, understand the strategies being employed to reach populations weary of the census or who have limited access to it, and find out how you can help us make sure the Upper Peninsula is accounted for in our next state and national budget! Attendance at this workshop will apply for Civic Engagement towards the Citizenship Edge in Superior Edge.
Victoria is a Capacity Builder for Grow and Lead and Abi is a Storm Block in the SLFP.
