Event Detail

Helping the Public Complete the 2020 Census: What Front-Line Staff Need to Know

Tuesday, February 18, 2020 (1:30 PM - 3:00 PM) Export to vCalendar
Where:   Zoom (Web Conference/Webinar)

The 2020 Census begins soon, and libraries have been called upon to facilitate a complete and correct count. This webinar aims to answer remaining questions and give your staff the confidence they need to assist the public.
Qs beyond the FAQ
We have 101 questions about the 9-question 2020 Census form, and suspect you do, too. Erika H. Becker-Medina, Chief of Communications for the Decennial Census helps clear the fog.

Legal considerations
What laws surround the Census? Am I legally required to respond? What laws protect personal Census data? Do libraries or staff face any risks by assisting? Attorney Britton Islay from Ansel Glink provides assurance from a legal perspective.

Pre-webinar recommended reading:
Make the most of this webinar by familiarizing yourself with the paper and online forms ahead of time and identifying the questions you have.
