Regular Board Meeting Oct. 2

The LAUSD Board will consider a resolution from Board president Monica Garcia (BD2), Vice President Nick Melvoin (BD4) and Board Member Kelly Gonez (BD6) to have LAUSD develop and adopt a plan to ensure that every family living within LAUSD boundaries is counted on the 2020 Census. LAUSD is home to populations that are most frequently undercounted in the Census, including children under 6, youth, immigrants, renters, homeless populations, those with limited-English proficiency, as well as those who live in apartment buildings. The potential addition of a citizenship question on the 2020 Census Questionnaire also has created an environment of fear and distrust in immigrant communities around the Census, which could lead to under-counting and therefore less representation. The entire agenda can be found here.
