Census 2020 Solutions Workshop


In conjunction with the US Census Bureau and the RI Division of Statewide Planning, on behalf of  the RI Complete Count Committee, and the Office of Library & Information Services offered two Census Solutions Workshops in April at the Warwick Public Library.

The morning session was attending by RI library staff along with representatives from city and town governments, planning departments, CAP agencies and more. The event was designed to bring together a variety of stakeholders to strengthen ties across the statewide community and encourage cross-sector thinking with the overall goal of making sure every Rhode Islander is counted in the 2020 Census.  Attendees also participated in a Design Thinking workshop led by an Intergovernmental Affairs Partnership Manager with U.S. Census Bureau to ideate ways to get the count out for 2020.
