Given our current national political climate, there are valid and heightened concerns about the administration, integrity, and accuracy of the 2020 Census. The Census results will have a major impact on targeted resource allocations, the reapportionment of the US Congress, and legislative district boundaries; all of which can lead to policy changes that disrupt the pubic support systems and programs that underserved  communities, families and indivduals need. What can we learn from history? What actions can be helpful now as we prepare for Census 2020? What can we do as institutions of higher education to work along side our respective communities to increase awareness, to stay current on the latest Census related news; and together take action to ensure a representative count.
