Make Marin Count: 2020 Census
The 2020 Census will likely be the most difficult census in recent history, and there could not be more at stake. With the 2020 Census less than two years away, California and Marin County are at serious risk of an undercount which would result in the loss of billions of dollars in Medicaid, SNAP, and Medicare resources as well as a congressional seat. However, with the addition of the citizenship question and the climate of fear cultivated by the federal administration, ensuring a complete and accurate count, particularly among the state’s immigrant communities and communities of color, will be more difficult than ever. Dr. Robert Eyler, Chief Economist, Marin Economic Forum Paul M. Cohen, Principal, PMCohen Public Affairs Lia Bolden, Partership Specialist San Francisco Bay Area, U.S. Census Bureau Kristin Drumm, Senior Planner, Marin County Community Development Agency Canal Alliance hosted this event to bring together leaders, information resources and ideas to ensure everyone counts in Marin County.
