Census 2020: Will our Communities be Counted?
May 9, 2019 at 8:30 am - 10:00 amFree
McAuley Ministries, Pittsburgh Mercy’s grant-making foundation, is hosting a breakfast with community partners to discuss “Census 2020: Will our Communities be Counted?” on Thursday, May 9, 2019, from 8:30 to 10 a.m. at the Jeron X. Grayson Community Center, 1852 Enoch Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15219 (Hill District). Organizations that work with individuals and families in communities are invited to discuss the challenges related to a complete and accurate census and to outline strategies for ensuring that our communities are counted. Historically, there are specific groups that have been under-counted in the census, particularly African-Americans, children under the age of 5, and low-income populations. When census information is inaccurate, under-counted people and their communities lose visibility, political representation, and access to vital resources.
