According to the U.S. Census Bureau, Illinois lost population in 86 of its 102 counties. Due to this decline combined with a potential undercount in the upcoming 2020 census, Illinois could lose up to two seats in Congress and billions of dollars in federal funding for everyday government expenditures, such as highways, education, and more.
University of Illinois Extension will host Carrie L. Davis, Democracy Program Director of the Joyce Foundation, Anita Banjeri from Forefront’s Democracy Initiative, and Elissa Johnson from the U.S. Regional Census Bureau to speak on how to ensure an accurate count for the upcoming decennial census.
This webinar is part of the University of Illinois Extension's Local Government Education Webinar Series.
DATE: October 17, 2019
TIME: noon CST
