US Census 2020

The US Census’ release of 2020 data continues to suffer delays, and to generate confusion, as journalists and civic stakeholders await data that will inform Congressional apportionment, election redistricting, and resource allocation. Join us for a Zoom panel discussion and roundtable on the latest updates on Census data and what North Carolina journalists can do to prepare and report now. We’ll share resources and tips, and gather questions for future training and collaboration.
