Asian Americans Advancing Justice- Los Angeles selected UPAC to be a Statewide Partner in their 2020 Census Statewide Outreach Network. The Network’s goal is to strengthen the participation and reduce the undercount of the state’s Asian American and Pacific Islander communities in the 2020 Census.
UPAC recently hosted its first “Let’s Shape Our Future 2020” Census Training and Informational session on August 20th! We had an excellent turnout of 40 engaged API and other community leaders committed to reaching our hard-to-count populations for participating in the upcoming census in 2020. AAAJ-LA and the US Census Bureau presented and there were multiple group exercises well received by all.
We look forward to more collaborative opportunities working with these and new community based partners!
Please check out our Census 2020 booth in partnership with The House of China and the US Census Bureau at the annual Moon Festival in Balboa Park on September 14, 2019!
