Participate in an SSI 2019 Collaboration on a Toolkit for Faculty to Address the 2020 Census

I am intending to present a workshop at the SENCER Summer Institute (Case Western Reserve University, August 1-4, 2019) on how higher education can support an accurate 2020 census, especially in hard to count communities and communities of color. Are there SENCER faculty who’d be willing to work with me on a Census 2020 Toolkit for dissemination in Fall 2019?  Contact me at bfranco@hawaii.edu
