2020 Census Jobs & Funding Forum – March 10, 2020

2020 Census Jobs & Funding Forum – March 10, 2020
What: North Side Forum on Job Opportunities and the Impact of the 2020 Census
When: Tuesday, March 10th 6:00 – 8:00 pm
Where: McKeon Lobby, Truman College, 1145 W. Wilson Ave.

Every 10 years, the federal government conducts a headcount of ever person living in the country as part of the U.S. Census.

The number of people counted in the Census determines how more than $800 billion of federal money in transportation, education, healthcare, housing, and other resources is distributed to states and local communities. Funding for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program. Illinois representative districts. School lunches. Plans for highways. Census results will affect you and our community every day!

This is why it is critical that everyone is counted in the 2020 Census. This includes children, green card holders, and hard-to-reach populations.

That is why I am hosting the Northside 2020 Census Forum so that 46th Ward and other north side residents can learn more about how to be counted in the 2020 Census and how to apply for Census jobs.

The forum will take place on Tuesday, March 10 from 6:00 – 8:00 pm at the Truman College McKeon Lobby, 1145 W. Wilson Ave. Enjoy refreshments from local restaurants while you learn about the importance of the 2020 Census and how you can help to ensure that everyone is counted.

I look forward to seeing you all there!
