Public Invited to 2020 Census Discussion at League of Women Voters on Thurs., 10/17

On October 17, 6:30 p.m., the League of Women Voters, Whitewater Area will host a public program in the City Hall Council Chambers to inform citizens on the importance of the 2020 Census and how to participate in the process. Program speakers include Patricia Gillette, Partnership Specialist with the Chicago Regional Census Center and US Census representative for the Whitewater area and Miguel Aranda, UW-Whitewater graduate-student member of Whitewater’s Complete Count Committee and advisor for the UW-Whitewater chapter of Voto Latino. The program will explain the process of the count and will address lingering concerns over the confidentiality of personal information and distrust following recent heated debates of adding a citizenship question, which we now know will not be a component of the 2020 Census.
