2020 Census 2 650w

SCHAUMBURG – Community members who are interested in learning more about the 2020 Census are invited to attend an information session and recruitment event hosted by State Senator Laura Murphy (D-Des Plaines) on March 23 from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the Al Larson Prairie Center for the Arts, 201 Schaumburg Ct., in Schaumburg.

“Working for the U.S. Census Bureau is one way you can help ensure your community gets counted, but it’s not the only way,” said Murphy.  “Whether you’re looking for a job or you just want to help spread the word, we can help you explore your options.”

Murphy is partnering with the Village of Schaumburg Complete Count Committee, the U.S. Census Bureau, Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi, State Rep. Michelle Mussman and Cook County Commissioner Kevin B. Morrison to host the event.

At the event, local officials will discuss how the census will affect the community and how residents can ensure that their neighbors are counted. Representatives from the U.S. Census Bureau will also be on hand to answer questions about working for the Census.

“For the next decade, data from the 2020 Census will determine our community’s government representation, federal funding, economic development, public transit routes and more,” said Murphy. “Everyone can play a part in making sure our neighborhoods are represented.”

Those interested in attending the event are encouraged to register online.
