Speakers (their presentations are linked here):

Here's the challenge, from an article by Martha Groves in CalMatters, 4/26/19 (whole article is recommended)

"Many factors conspire to make California the nation’s hardest-to-count state. They include the high immigrant population, many residents’ limited English proficiency, the high number of renters and multiple-family households with children 5 and under, homeless people, couch surfers and those with limited access to technology. For the first time, this census is expected to be conducted, for the most part, electronically."

The Pittsburg Library is .3 miles from Pittsburg eBART. Parking is available at the Library. Want to carpool? Call or email the League office and be sure to leave your city and your phone number!
 
(Curious about the graphic? It's a page from the 1940 census for Hennepin County, Minnesota (Minneapolis), very different from the form we'll use in 2020.)
