Join us for our monthly Census 2020 planning meeting in San Diego North County on Wednesday, May 22, 2019 from 2-4pm at Centro Universidad Popular.
Using the California Hard-to-Count (CA-HTC) Index by census tract-level data, we identified the hardest-to-count tracts across North County, and found approximately 48 Hard to Count Census tracts along the 78-Corridor and the 76-Corridor. HTC communities include: Latinos, African-Americans, Asian Americans/Pacific Islanders, Middle Eastern North Africans, Immigrants and Refugees, farmworkers, people with disabilities, seniors/older adults, homeless individuals and families, children ages 0-5, veterans, areas with low, limited or no access to broadband subscription rates, households with Limited English Proficiency and Native Americans/Tribal Communities.
Limited English Proficiency (LEP) persons are routinely undercounted in census participation due to second-language learning, and/or lower levels of education and literacy. Do you know which languages are widely spoken in your community?
At this meeting, we are going to discuss the development of a language access plan to outline language resources and needs across the North County region.
If you or your organization works with individuals and/or families who are traditionally disenfranchised and hard to reach, we urge you to be part of the planning process to ensure we identify outreach and education strategies that are culturally and linguistically responsive.
