May, 2018

On 5/29/18, GWP members gathered to learn more about the challenges to a fair census, and how undercounts hurt everyone – not just the undercounted groups.  We heard from local, state, and national representatives to learn what has to happen on the ground, and the roles that philanthropy can play to help ensure a fair and accurate count.  Speakers included: 

Perla Ni, CEO, Great Nonprofits/ Founder, Census Outreach Project

Gary Bass, Executive Director, Bauman Foundation

Erin Casey, Executive Director, Pennsylvania Voice

Mary Esther Van Shura, Director of Community Affairs, Allegheny County

Feyisola Alabi, Manager of Welcoming Pittsburgh, Office of the Mayor
