THE FORUM: Every 10 years the U.S. government is mandated to
conduct a headcount of everyone Ė citizens and non-citizens -
residing in the 50 states, Puerto Rico and the U.S. territorial
islands. Headcount numbers are used to allocate federal dollars to
state and local communities and are central to determining U.S.
Congressional representation when districts are redrawn in 2021.
But new methods including increased reliance on electronic
participation and the current climate of mistrust in the government
could impede participation. Panelists will discuss this and more.
Moderator: Barbara Hunsicker, LWVAA Board Memeber
Panelist: Kent Camino, US Department of the Census
Panelist: Ilene Shapiro, Summit County Executive
Panelist: Larry Chadwick, Interim President, Akron Urban League
