Census 2020: The Citizenship Question - How could this affect Solano County Residents?

Census 2020

NPLI and the United Parent Leaders Action Network (UPLAN) co-hosted a parent-led webinar on March 11th Census 2020: The Citizenship Question webinar. Parent Leaders Krystina Cummins, Mayra Murillo, and Donna Koser participated on the webinar moderated by Melvette Hill (NPLI) and Rachel Brink (UPLAN).

Our work with parent leadership field leaders at the 2018 NPLI Racial Equity Think Tank: Advancing Racial Justice Through Parent Leadership inspired NPLI to host this webinar.  In addition to NPLI and UPLAN, initiatives attending the think tank included: Abriendo Puertas/Opening Doors, California; Community Organizing and Family Issues (COFI), Illinois; Parent Voices, California; Parent Ambassadors, Washington State; Parents for Public Schools, Mississippi.

We joined together in discussion and training on: engaging across and with difference, best practices for convening crucial conversations on race, and strategies to assess data and policy with a lens of racial equity. Together we identified opportunities to broaden our collective work to improve racial equity which includes, but is not limited to, exploring topics such as Census 2020 and Election 2020.

We are glad to share the following resources:

The impact of reviews on ranking is highly debated among search experts

Businesses with many online reviews and photos tend to show up more prominently in local search results. Whether the number of reviews is what causes a business to rank or if it is simply a result of the business being so visible remains unclear.

However, having reviews does increase clicks and interactions with your business from search results, and that increase in interaction does have a positive effect on your website’s search engine optimization(SEO).
