Hosted by the LBJ Library –
Join the #LBJFutureForum for lunch and a conversation on the 2020 census and its implications for Texas—for our budget, for politics, and for business. We’ll also dive into the challenges with reaching under-reported populations.
The 2020 census, scheduled for April 1, will provide critical data that has a direct impact on community funding, state legislative district boundaries, and the number of seats each state will have in the U.S. House of Representatives. Learn more: https://2020census.gov/en/what-is-2020-census.html
Confirmed panelists include:
– John Lawler, Census Program Manager, City of Austin-Travis County
– Genesis Sanchez, Regional Census Manager – Texas, NALEO Educational Fund
– Dr. Lila Valencia, Senior Demographer, Texas Demographic Center
– Justin Yancy, President, Texas Business Leadership Council
– Moderator: Alexa Ura, Demographics Reporter/Associate Editor, Texas Tribune
The program will take place in the LBJ Presidential Library’s 10th-floor atrium. Lunch is 11:30 a.m.-noon and the discussion is from noon-1 p.m. The program is free and open to the public.
