CHICAGO – As the 2020 Census approaches, state Rep. Justin Slaughter, D-Chicago, is partnering with the U.S. Census Bureau to host a census job fair and help connect local residents to upcoming job opportunities.
“Information gathered from the census will help ensure that our community has accurate representation in Congress and receives the federal funding it needs for the resources we rely on, such as schools, medical centers and infrastructure,” said Slaughter. “In order to make sure that each and every person is counted, the U.S. Census Bureau will be filling numerous positions to help get the job done, and this event will help local residents find out more about the job opportunities available.”
The event will take place on Thursday, Aug. 29 from 10 a.m. to noon at Carter G. Woodson Regional Library, located at 9525 S. Halsted St. in Chicago. Representatives from the U.S. Census Office will be present to provide information on local job opportunities during the census and to assist with the application process.
“By connecting local residents with job opportunities available for the 2020 Census, we are not only helping people gain meaningful employment, but we are also helping these individuals make a difference in their communities,” said Slaughter. “I am very excited to see what opportunities the U.S. Census Bureau has to offer, and I encourage all members of our community to attend.”
