Forum on the Road: YBCA (Cancelled - Live Broadcast 3/27)Description
*** We at KQED regret to inform you that – in light of the San Francisco Department of Public Health’s “Aggressive Recommendations to Reduce the Spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19)” advising limits on public gatherings – this Forum on the Road event will be cancelled.
But you can tune-in to KQED 88.5FM to hear this panel with host Mina Kim on the 2020 Census as a part of the Forum live broadcast during the event’s originally scheduled time 9-11:00 am on March 27.
And you can still check out Come to Your Census: Who Counts in America? at YBCA, which runs through July. ***
This spring, the Forum team is hitting the road to take on 2020 in front of audiences around the Bay Area. On our second of five stops, we’ll be broadcasting live from Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, where host Mina Kim will be taking on the US Census.
April 1, 2020 is Census Day in the United States -- when the U.S. government counts the population in order to inform political representation and allocate funds for resources like infrastructure, college aid and social programs. Looming over California getting an accurate census count this year are issues of housing insecurity, displacement from wildfires, and a lack of trust in the process that can make communities “hard to count.” During this live Forum, in partnership with Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, we look at the hard-to-count communities in the Bay Area and California, as well as the creative ways organizations are working to reach those communities to make sure everyone is counted.
Breakfast beverages will be made available in the YBCA lobby prior to the event. Guests will receive access to a reception following the event where refreshments will be served.
All are invited to attend Come to Your Census: Who Counts in America? Free and open to the public, the opening of this art and civic experience coincides with our live broadcast and will include a daylong community celebration and the opportunity to take the Census on site.
