2020 Census Public Meeting

  • Tuesday, March 5, 2019, 6:30pm
  • Athens Community Center (701 E. State St. Athens, OH 45701) meeting room A
  • Event listing on Facebook

Community Members, Civic Organizations, Local Government and Everyone is invited.

Rose Simmons, of the U.S. Census Bureau, will speak about:

  • census design
  • background and importance
  • importance of participation by all kinds of civic organizations
  • what is at stake
  • next steps, for those who want to work toward a successful census

The meeting will also include discussion about forming a Complete Count Committee.

Census data are used to determine congressional representation, the distribution of federal money, and where businesses locate. The data are used by programs ranging from SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program), to College Pell Grants, to Crime Victim Assistance, and Wildlife Restoration. We hope that this meeting starts a conversation in our local communities about the importance of the census.

The League of Women Voters, an issue-oriented organization,

  • does not support candidates or political parties,
  • encourages informed and active participation in government,
  • works to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and
  • influences public policy through education and advocacy.
