Free Webinar: The 2020 Census Disability Count Continues

Tuesday, May 5, 2020; 2:00 p.m. Eastern

The 2020 Census deadlines have been extended due to COVID-19. What does this mean for the disability rights community? In this free webinar, speakers from the National Association of Councils on Developmental Disabilities (NACDD), The Arc of the United States, and the National Disability Rights Network (NDRN) will discuss:

  • The importance of the census and how it will impact the disability community
  • Changing deadlines and other adjustments made due to COVID-19
  • Ways you can engage with the census and outreach about the census in the months ahead.

At the end of the webinar, participants will fill out a menu of ways their organization will engage in the census, including how webinar participants can share the messages of #BeCounted, #DisabilityCounts2020, and others.
