Asian Americans Advancing Justice is hosting the 18th installment of their monthly census webinar series next week. Please join for the Webinar on Census Response Rates & Reaching Historically Undercounted Communities on Thursday, May 7 at 4PM EST.
This webinar will focus on the most up-to-date analysis of census response rates collected by City University of New York’s Hard to Count Map and how organizations can use this data to amplify their Get Out the Count efforts. They will also be diving deeper on how to reach hard to count communities during the ongoing changes of the Non-Response Follow Up period and doing a messaging refresher on how to continue motivating the AANHPI community to fill out the census. The webinar is recorded, and a recording and the presentation will be shared following the webinar. If you cannot join the live webinar, you can still RSVP to receive the recording afterwards.
