Complete Count Committee (CCC) kick-off meeting
- Date: September 18, 2019 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM
- Location: Plummer Park
7377 Santa Monica Boulevard, Rooms 1 & 2
West Hollywood, California 90069
- Introduction: The objective of the City’s CCC is to develop strategies for engaging hard-to-reach community members so that everyone in West Hollywood is counted during Census 2020.
Census 2020 will take place on April 1, 2020.
“The census provides critical information,” said West Hollywood Mayor John D’Amico. “A complete count will help to ensure that West Hollywood receives a fair share of federal funding and investments and, on a state level, the count will determine California’s apportionment in the U.S. House of Representatives. It’s so important that people in our community take part and be counted.”
The City’s efforts, “Be Counted West Hollywood,” will help to mobilize community members to take part in the upcoming census and will educate local residents and stakeholders about the importance of participating in the census and returning the questionnaire.
The objective of the City’s CCC is to develop strategies for engaging hard-to-reach community members so that everyone in West Hollywood is counted. A complete count is vitally important; an incomplete count may lead to inaccurate population figures, which are used by federal and state governments to assign resources on a per-capita basis. As a community of just 1.9 square miles, the City of West Hollywood will work diligently to achieve a complete census count in Census 2020.
As a member of the CCC, local stakeholders will help craft strategies and will be equipped with important information about the Census 2020. In addition, members of the CCC will assist in disseminating information about the importance of the Census to friends, acquaintances, neighbors, and more.
The meeting is open to the public.
