This meeting will provide an update on resources and tools for frontline organizations working in “hard to count” communities as they prepare to #MakeBrooklynCount in Census 2020. It will also serve as the first opportunity for Brooklyn Complete Count Sub-Committees to meet and identify shared challenges and opportunities for their organizations as they embark on the next year of Census work.

Brooklyn is considered the “hardest to count” county in all of New York State, and had the lowest response rate in 2010 among all counties nationwide with populations over 500,000. The Brooklyn Complete Count Committee is determined to #MakeBrooklynCount in 2020 by maximizing local coordination, messaging, and outreach to communities across the borough.
