Miami Urban League to host Census Town Hall Meeting

Miami – The Urban League of Greater Miami has been working to improve underserved communities in Miami-Dade County since 1943. The 2010 Census Count is the latest project for which the League has been working to bring in millions of critically needed dollars to these devastated communities.

Our Census Support Team has been successful in increasing the 2010 Response Rates from 53 percent – 69 percent in our service areas (West Little River, Liberty City and Brownsville/Allapattah). Still, the count is far from complete. For every citizen not counted we lose $1,000 – $2,500 for services to our communities. Therefore, we aim to reach a 95-100 percent response rate.

On Saturday, June 19, 2010 at 3:00 pm, the Miami Urban League will hold its final 2010 Census outreach event. We have invited various organizations which serve the Miami-Dade Black Community. During the Town Hall Meeting we will recognize those with the highest local and national response rates. We invite you to participate in our Town Hall Meeting as well, which will be held at:

Miami Urban League
Arthur McDuffie Family Enrichment Center
8400 NW 25th Avenue
Miami, FL. 33147

Please R.S.V.P. to Barbara Howard no later than June 17, 2010
