California Tribal Census Town Hall (Virtual)


California Native Vote Project, California Indian Manpower Consortium, Inc., and California Consortium for Urban Indian Health cordially invites you to join us in our upcoming Virtual Community Town Hall Meeting on Saving the Census on Thursday, September 17, 2020 - 4:00 PM (PDT)

Indian Country is struggling to complete an accurate count of our population for the U.S Census. COVID-19 forced major changes in the Census outreach strategy. Now, the Trump administration is trying to end the Census count one month early. Shortening the census period will leave out many people across Indian Country.

Let’s be clear about what’s at stake for American Indian and Alaska Natives. An undercount will lead to losing as much as $1 billion per year. These are resources that our Native communities rely on for healthcare, schools, roads, and other essential programs and services.

During the community town hall, we are inviting community leaders and members to discuss the devastating impacts that COVID-19 has had on our historical low count, as well as the impacts of the decision to cut the Census short a month early.

It is important to us that Congress hear our voices and demands for a fair and complete count. We urge every individual of the community to attend and amplify this meeting on social media.
