[ARCHIVED] Human Relations Commission’s Coffee & Conversation Series Continues with Census Edition

EAST LANSING, Mich. — In partnership with the East Lansing Census 2020 Complete Count Committee, the East Lansing Human Relations Commission’s (HRC) Coffee & Conversation series will continue with a Census Edition on Wednesday, Feb. 26 from 4-6 p.m. at Foster Coffee Co., 196 Albert Ave. The series provides a forum for community discussions on topics of diversity and inclusion.

Members of the East Lansing Census 2020 Complete Count Committee will join the HRC to share information and discuss the U.S. Census Bureau’s decennial census – a constitutionally mandated headcount of everyone living in the United States. Community members are encouraged to attend to learn more about how the Census is being implemented, why the Census is important and what types of outreach methods the City has undertaken to count people in ‘hard to reach’ areas.

“The Census is a phenomenally important survey for all East Lansing residents to complete. The number of people counted relates directly to the amount of state and federal financial resources for schools, roads and emergency services our city will receive over the next decade. It also determines the number of congressional seats the State of Michigan holds in Congress. We ask that everyone take 10 minutes to complete the Census form,” said East Lansing Census 2020 Complete Count Committee Chair Laurence Rosen.

This event is free and open to all community members. Light refreshments and one-hour parking validations will be provided to those in attendance. Community members can learn more about the Census at
