Are you curious about how you, as an MCF member, can get involved in supporting the 2020 Census efforts in Minnesota? There are a number of ways to support Census activities, and this brief video call is an opportunity to hear how two MCF members got involved. Catherine Gray of The Minneapolis Foundation and Jen Racho of Northwest Area Foundation will both share their stories of how their organizations are working to ensure historically undercounted communities are counted in Minnesota and that we achieve a fully inclusive, nonpartisan, and accurate Census count.

MCF has led the community-centered effort to prepare Minnesota for the 2020 Census since 2015, and it is a board-approved leadership commitment for the organization. MCF leads the coordination of the MN Census Mobilization Partnership (MCMP), a cross-sector collaboration of organizations and individuals focused on advocating for the Census at the state and federal level, completing special projects to better support a full count in Minnesota, and organizing and mobilizing participation from historically undercounted communities.  MCF has provided leadership in raising public funds and philanthropic dollars to support a fully-inclusive, nonpartisan and accurate count in Minnesota. This work aligns with MCF’s public policy goal of creating prosperity through inclusion and equity by creating power through stronger democratic systems and civic engagement.
