Raising Our Voices: 2020 Census Info Session

09/24/2019 09:00 AM - 10:30 AM PT


The 2020 Census is right around the corner, and the stakes are high for the Walla Walla Valley.

The Census determines how funds are distributed for schools, nonprofit services, roads, and other programs that make our region thrive.

We all care about our community’s future, and we have the power to work together to ensure that our region is counted next year.

Please join Washington Nonprofits, and the Washington Census Alliance on September 24 for a fun, informative, and action-oriented session about the 2020 Census.

Attendees will learn:
•    The why, what, how, and when of the 2020 Census; and why it matters to the Walla Walla region.
•    How to support the count as community organizations and individuals.
•    Who to connect with to support the 2020 Census.
•    What resources are available for getting out the count.


Tuesday, September 24, 9:00-10:30 am

Doors will open at 8:30 am for networking and light breakfast
