Governor Dunleavy joined the director of the U.S. Census Bureau, Steven Dillingham, at the Alaska Native Heritage Center Friday morning to kick off the 2020 Census.

Congratulations to everyone who has been working extremely hard to let Alaskans know about the census. Alaska Counts, a project developed by the Alaska Census Working Group, has put together a comprehensive and exciting campaign that stresses to Alaskans the importance to the state’s future of participating in the census count. We encourage you to visit their website to learn more about the census and how you can work in your community to encourage participation.

You can also see some of the media coverage of the kick-off here and here.

Foraker is proud to be the convener of the Alaska Census Working Group. We will continue to support them and chair Gabe Layman, a Foraker Operations Board member, as they work closely with communities, the state, and the Census Bureau to ensure a successful census count in our state.
