NEW YORK (February 8, 2018) -- As part of the National Urban League’s ongoing push for a fair and accurate 2020 Census, the league has enlisted a leading civic engagement expert as a Senior Advisor for the Census.
“I’m proud to announce that Jeri Green will help lead our effort to ensure that the 2020 Census results in a full count of minority and underserved communities,” National Urban League President and CEO Marc H. Morial said. “Few undertakings by our federal government are as consequential as the Census, and an undercount would lead to lasting damage for our most vulnerable populations.”
In her former position as Senior Advisor for Civic Engagement with the U.S. Census Bureau, Green educated diverse stakeholders on the benefits of Census participation and engaged Hard-to-Count communities to ascertain their unique challenges to obtaining an accurate count.
“The Urban League Movement, with its 90 affiliates and associated groups, is in a unique position to help reach the communities whose participation is paramount,” Green said. “I look forward to exploring the ways we can help to make the upcoming census a force for better representation and more equitable distribution of resources.”
