Cities of Service webinar – Finding Your Messengers: Lessons on Census Field Recruitment from San Jose

Wednesday, May 1st
12:30pm Pacific, 3:30pm Eastern

One of the greatest challenges that cities will face while preparing for the upcoming 2020 Census is ensuring that accurate and consistent information reaches community members. One strategy that cities can use to ensure an accurate count is to recruit trusted, local community members to serve as field staff and enumerators. Their existing knowledge and relationships allow them to deliver a clear message about the value of being counted and to encourage participation on a more personal level.

Everyday Democracy webinar – Civility and Civil Discourse in an Age of Divisiveness

EvDem LogoOur nation is facing a most difficult time in its history, as there seems to be less and less tolerance for different points of view, facts are often ignored to accommodate partisan demagoguery, and antagonism and divisiveness have reached new heights. How can we find new ways to talk to each other across difference? How can we find it in ourselves to be open-minded for considering new ways of thinking? How can we engage with those who hold different views from our own to find common ground, even when we disagree on some key issues? Hosted by UCONN doctoral candidate DANA MIRANDA who is a Connecticut Civic Ambassador, Mr. Miranda co-runs the Initiative on Campus Dialogues and the Encounters Series at UCONN.
