Physical Description

This month’s topic is the 2020 Census.

You may have heard that the U.S. government is preparing for the next Census in 2020. Did you know that Oregon has joined seventeen other states in a lawsuit to block changes to the Census? Do you know what’s at stake for your nonprofit and the communities you serve? (hint: a lot!)

In this e-news, we interview Jason Jurjevich and Charles Rynerson of PSU’s Population Research Center to understand how nonprofits can take action by getting involved in local Complete Count Committees and by sharing important information with their communities.

Let the resources and insights we share in The Nonprofit Nerd inspire you to get your nerd on and find innovative ways to make research and data work for you and your nonprofit!


The Nonprofit Institute (NPI) is a collaboration with community stakeholders and representatives from PSU’s College of Urban and Public Affairs, College of the Arts, the School of Business’ Impact Entrepreneurs program, and the School of Social Work’s Center to Advance Racial Equity.
