LWV To Discuss 2020 Census

The League of Women Voters of Palm Beach County is inviting the public to another Hot Topic Luncheon on Wednesday, July 18 at 11:30 a.m. at the Atlantis Country Club. Registration starts at 11 a.m. and lunch will be served promptly at 11:30 a.m.

The luncheon’s topic will be “The Importance of the 2020 Census.” The three special guest speakers will be Palm Beach County Mayor Melissa McKinley, Palm Beach County Director of Public Affairs Lisa De La Rionda and Palm Beach County Deputy Planning Director Patricia Behn. Their key objective is to ensure that each and every resident of Palm Beach County is counted in the 2020 Census, including hard-to-count populations, such as young children, minorities, non-English speakers, the homeless, undocumented immigrants and college students. Why? Because everyone in Palm Beach County and Florida loses if the census count isn’t accurate.

Tickets for the luncheon are $25 per person until July 9, and $35 after that date. RSVPs are requested online at www.lwvpbc.org or by calling (561) 968-4123.
