You’re invited to Los Angeles Regional Census Table Meeting – February 28, 2019

Los Angeles County is the hardest-to-count county in the United States and it will take a broad, collective effort to ensure a fair and accurate count in the 2020 Census. An undercount could result in the loss of a congressional seat for California and billions of dollars in federal funding for our state and local communities. It could also result in unfair political representation, since census counts are used to redraw political districts at the federal, state and local levels.

In February 2018, Advancement Project California partnered with the California Community Foundation to convene the Los Angeles Regional Census Table (LARCT), a group of community-based and other nonprofit organizations dedicated to reaching hard-to-count populations in the upcoming decennial census. Through the LARCT, organizations are able to share knowledge and resources, as well as coordinate outreach efforts with each other and government agencies, especially the County and City of Los Angeles. The LARCT, which meets quarterly, also serves as the Stakeholder/Community Table Subcommittee of the 2020 Census Countywide Complete Count Committee.

Beginning in 2019, the LARCT will be restructured to facilitate access across the county. In collaboration with our partners, Antelope Valley Partners for Health, L.A. Voice, Long Beach Forward, Pacoima Beautiful, and Southeast Los Angeles Collaborative, LARCT meetings will now be hosted at six different locations throughout the L.A. region.
