By the Numbers: How the 2020 Census and New Voter Experience will Impact the Next Decade
Every 10 years Los Angeles gets a snapshot of its collective identity through the United States (U.S.) Census, which is mandated by the Constitution and aims to count every resident. But the 2020 Census is more than just a head count of everyone living in the U.S. Apart from voting, little else rivals the immense role of the 2020 Census in determining the distribution of political power and resources in the U.S. Since Los Angeles County has historically struggled with undercounting its residents, participation in the 2020 Census will be particularly important. This workshop is intended to help people relate to the new 2020 Census and Los Angeles County’s new voter experience.
