This call offered a status update on the 2020 Census, which began in earnest mid-March, just as COVID-19 was declared a global pandemic. Participants heard from national and state-based philanthropic leaders to learn what’s at stake with the count, where self-response is lagging in historically undercounted communities, how practitioners are adjusting their education and outreach campaigns in the wake of COVID-19, and how funders can engage toward a fair and accurate count.
