Join Councilman Canek Aguirre, city staff, and local leaders for the second in a three-part series featuring panel discussions on the 2020 Census and why it is so important for EVERYONE to respond. For every 1% of Alexandrians not counted, the city loses $18 million dollars in federal funding over the next ten years. In this session, we hone in on the impact of the census on our schools, which are among the biggest beneficiaries of an accurate census count. Find out which specific programs and services will be heavily impacted by Alexandria's response rates to the 2020 Census and what we can all do to encourage maximum community participation.
