Minnesota Census Mobilization Partnership - Quarterly Meeting

Friday, December 7, 2018 10:00am - 12:30pm CST
2180 North Hamline Avenue - Roseville, MN


Find out how we can most effectively engage Minnesota's historically undercounted communities in the 2020 Census. Be the first to hear what's in the Minnesota census communication and organizing plan that was developed over the past year by a network of well-connected community organizers.

The plan will help you understand what connects different communities to the census, their concerns, and how to best communicate and organize to make sure Minnesota's census is fully-inclusive and accurate. Representatives from the group that hosted 20 listening sessions around the state to engage communities as co-creators of this census communication and organizing plan for Minnesota will be presenting, along with the project consultants from Grassroots Solutions. The plan was developed with support from Bush Foundation, Blandin Foundation, and other donors.

Also at this meeting, you'll have a chance to help shape the Partnership's plan for securing state funding and policy changes from the new legislature and governor, and to comment on the proposal for how the Partnership is going to organize resources for special outreach to historically undercounted communities.

As usual, you will also get updates about what's happening with census funding, policy and politics in DC, including efforts to stop the citizenship question, as well as updates about the State's efforts to make sure every Minnesotan is counted.
