Panelists will address the importance of the 2020 Census from practical, technological, and social justice perspectives, including how our communities will be counted, what questions will and will not be asked, and census data security. They will also address why some populations tend to be undercounted, why ensuring that everyone counts matters, and what we can do in our communities to ensure a complete a fair count.
