Austin Monitor Radio: The 2020 U.S. Census

Thursday, March 19, 2020 by Austin Monitor

This week, Mariana Salazar, who is the Census 2020 project director at United Way for Greater Austin, sits down with Austin Monitor reporter Jessi Devenyns to talk about why participation in this year’s national census is so important and how her organization is aiming to get everyone in the region counted. Though this week’s edition of our radio show was recorded last week, it feels like much longer ago, given the rapid escalation of reactions to COVID-19. This week, we detailed ways in which the effort to get a complete count have changed, but the message remains the same: Fill out your census form!

Austin Monitor Radio is produced in partnership with KOOP 91.7 FM.

The Austin Monitor’s work is made possible by donations from the community.
