The 2020 Census and the LGBTQ+ Community

In 2020, the United States will conduct its 24th census. Will LGBTQI+ citizens be counted? Will they even bother to fill out the census forms? The results of the country's every-10-years census are used in everything from apportioning representatives in the U.S. House of Representatives to the provision of social services.

Join us for a timely discussion about why the census is important to LGBTQI+ people and how it impacts resources for members of our community. 


In association with the Office of Civic Engagement and Immigrant Affairs and the Office of Transgender Initiatives
