Many people and organizations in the Washington, DC region undertook efforts to ensure that we had a fair and accurate Census 2020 count. We believe that a complete and accurate 2020 Census is critical for advancing racial and economic equity in our region.

Join us to share lessons on both successes and challenges, discuss what worked and what didn't, learn how the Census efforts and infrastructure could help strengthen civic engagement and advance equity, and develop initial recommendations for local, state and national partners to lay the groundwork for a successful 2030 census.


Ron Brown
Field Representative, Census Bureau

Mr. Brown will present the Census data for the region and analysis, overall lessons, and future plans.
