Please join us for our next Chapter Advocacy Exchange webinar:
February 27, 2019 — Libraries and the 2020 Census: 2:00 PM CST – 3:00 PM CST
State and local governments are organizing for the upcoming 2020 Census, and libraries should have a seat at the table. Governors, state legislators, mayors, philanthropic funders and other leaders across the country are forming Complete Count Committees and allocating resources to help get communities get counted. These efforts offer library staff and supporters opportunities to increase awareness of library services, strengthen community relationships, and support libraries’ work related to census outreach. Hear from librarians who have been involved with Complete Count efforts and learn about new advocacy resources from ALA’s Public Policy and Advocacy team.
Our guest speakers will be Michelle Perera, Director of the Pasadena (Calif.) Public Library; Jennie Stapp, Montana State Librarian; and Diane Foote, Executive Director of the Illinois Library Association. We will also be joined by Gavin Baker, ALA’s Assistant Director of Government Relations and Larra Clark, ALA’s Deputy Director of Public Policy.
Please share with library advocacy leaders in your state.
