Effective Messages for the 2020 Census: Engaging API Communities

Thursday, October 11, 2018 12:00pm - 1:15pm CDT

(Note:  This webinar is rescheduled from September 20)

Registration for this webinar is being handled through the Funders Committee for Civic Participation.

MCF is committed to a fully-inclusive, fair (no politics!), and accurate census count in 2020. One part of achieving that goal is to make sure we effectively communicate with and engage those who identify with historically undercounted communities. MCF is working in partnership with a national network of grantmakers and PSOs (philanthropy serving organizations) to conduct research to identify messages that resonate with historically undercounted communities. 

In this webinar, you will learn from new research about how to effectively communicate about the census and engagement strategies to involve Asian/Pacific Islander communities in the 2020 Census.  Presenting will be John Yang, president and executive director at Asian Americans Advancing Justice. Karen Narasaki with The Bauman Foundation and Democracy Funders Collaborative Census Subgroup will facilitate the session.

This is the final presentation in a three-part webinar series sharing research to guide communication about the 2020 Cenus in communities of color. The previous webinars were on Sepember 6 featured information about engaging Black communities and September 12 featuring information about engaging Latino communities. You can listen to these session now.

These webinars and free and open to grantmakers and community partners who are working to achieve a fully inclusive and accurate 2020 census.  However, registration is required.
