Census 2020 Community Dialogue

September 2019

Program Officer Caitlin Mayo, who leads the foundation’s Bridges for Census 2020 work, participated in an informative discussion hosted by the Fairfax County Census 2020 Complete Count Committee at the Dar Al-Hijrah Islamic Center.  Panelists emphasized the importance of community-based nonprofits, faith leaders, and civic leaders serving as trusted sources during Census 2020 outreach, especially for historically under-counted populations.  After the panel, participants had a chance to mingle, ask questions, and develop strategies for getting a #completecount.
