California Community Foundation (CCF)
Los Angeles County, CA
The California Community Foundation (CCF) seeks to support community-based education, outreach and assistance efforts for hard-to-count (HTC) communities across Los Angeles County in the Census 2020.
Motivating the millions of HTC residents in the LA region to participate in the 2020 Census will require robust and coordinated outreach by community-based organizations (CBOs). Given their deep relationships with and knowledge of HTC populations, CBOs are trusted messengers and will be critical to success in ensuring these groups are counted.
Census 2020 will be a landmark effort. We are seeking to transform the challenges into opportunities. First, this is an opportunity to mobilize all corners of our community – from organizations at the grassroots level to our local government to philanthropy. Collaboration makes us stronger and is a hallmark of how we accomplish positive change in Los Angeles. Finally, there is an opportunity for leverage Census 2020 as an act of mass civic engagement that is perhaps even more consequential to our most vulnerable residents than voting given the Census’ impact at the local level.
