  • Monday, April 29, 2024

A Virtual Briefing for Practitioners, Funders, and Philanthropy-Serving Organizations

Given the unique government to government relationships with tribes and the significant undercount of Native Americans both on reservations and in urban areas work is beginning now to shape the U.S. Census Bureau’s operations and cooperation with the tribes and urban Indian agencies.

Census Equity Initiative (CEI) and the cosponsors below invite you to a virtual briefing to share information about the importance of decennial census and American Community Survey (ACS) data for American Indians and Alaska Natives, particular causes and implications of the persistent undercount and growing concerns with the quality of data in the ACS when it comes to Native American communities. Experts will discuss the Census Bureau operations and gaps in federal data collection and analysis which undermines AIAN data equity. Advocates will discuss what they are doing to organize their communities and improve planning for the 2030 census and ACS operations.
