      EVENT DETAILS
      Illinois Count Me in 2020 Census Summit

      Join Forefront’s Illinois Count Me In 2020 Coalition for a day-long summit on Wednesday, April 3 in Springfield to connect and learn how to make sure our state’s 2020 Census count is fair and accurate. Participants will learn strategies for reaching hard-to-count residents and walk away with information on how to engage in Census outreach activities and coordinate with other communities across the State. There will be opportunities to share ideas and coordinate your efforts with neighboring areas and like-minded groups. During the summit, the IL Count Me In 2020 Funders’ Collaborative will announce its grantees for community engagement and education regarding the Census. Keynote speaker María Teresa Kumar, founding President and CEO of Voto Latino and an Emmy-nominated contributor with MSNBC, will share her insights on civic activism and democratic engagement and discuss how we can leverage nonprofit and philanthropic networks across the state so community voices are heard, represented, and counted. Please join us in Springfield and invite others to come too. Everyone must be counted in 2020! #ILCountMeIn2020
