2020 U.S. Census discussion

Post Date:April 05, 2019 11:44 a.m.

Join us for a discussion Thursday, April 18, 7 p.m., of the 2020 U.S. Census and the possible effects of the citizenship question included in the census.

The program is hosted by the St. Louis Park Human Rights Commission and the League of Women Voters of St. Louis Park. Speakers are Andrew Virden, director of Census operations for Minnesota, and Nadia Pratt, immigration attorney.

Data collected by the U.S. Census determines representation (number of members) in the U.S. and Minnesota House of Representatives; guides federal funding to communities for schools, roads, hospitals and emergency services; and assists businesses in locating or building their facilities, recruit employees and conducting market research. The results of the U.S. Census could affect the future of St. Louis Park and of Minnesota, so ensuring a complete count is important. Learn more by watching the U.S. Census Bureau's Shape Your Future video.

The event will take place at the community room, first floor, St. Louis Park City Hall, 5005 Minnetonka Blvd.

Anyone can attend and everyone is welcome!
