To help libraries effectively organize Census efforts in their communities, we’ve scheduled a presentation from Mario D. Garcia, Partnership Specialist with the Census Bureau for the Lower Hudson Valley Region, which covers Westchester to Albany.
The presentation will provide an overview of how Census data is collected and protected, the laws that ensure the Census occurs and how the Census Bureau operates, a brief overview about complete count committees and information about jobs that will be offered through the Census. Library directors are encouraged to attend and bring along representatives from local government and community-based organizations interested in ensuring everyone is counted in your community.
This session will be streamed using the auditorium’s broadcast capabilities to ensure maximum reach for this event. Participants are encouraged to attend the presentation in-person at the auditorium, but smaller group and individual viewings will be available online for those who can’t attend.
