Quarterly Census Expo

Plan to attend the next Quarterly Census Expo. Hosted by Charitable Ventures, the Orange County/Region 9 Administrative CBO (ACBO), and the OC Census Community Table, the Expo is the place to share Census information and knowledge, build strong partnerships and collaboration between trusted leaders in the community, and enhance a county-wide coordinated outreach effort.

Previous Quarterly Census Expos have taken place in:

  • June 2019
  • September 2019
  • January 2020
  • April 2020

During the September Expo (pictured below), attendees participated in a design-thinking workshop focused on messaging for our Hard-to-Count populations.


QAC or QAK

Set up a QAC or QAK. A what or what?! QAC is Questionnaire Assistance Center and QAK is Questionnaire Action Kiosk. And we’re hopeful that organizations up and down Orange County will set up these Centers and Kiosks to support OC residents in completing their Census forms.

For more details and next steps, please click here to download our QAC/QAK instruction flyer.

Census Training

Census Training kicked off in Orange County in the Fall of 2019 and ramped up in early 2020. NALEO, Asian Americans Advancing Justice – LA, OCAPICA and the OC Civic Engagement Table conducted Census trainings for interested individuals and organizations. By May 2020, nearly all Census training wrapped.

Interested in receiving Census training for your organization? Please email 2020Census@charitableventuresoc.org

QAC Training

Questionnaire Assistance Centers, or QACs, are physical locations where community members can safely and conveniently get information about the 2020 Census in their native language and complete the Census on a device/phone, as well as interact with community-based organizations who are trusted messengers.

Charitable Ventures (www.charitableventuresoc.org), as the Orange County/Region 9 State-designated Administrative Community-Based Organization (ACBO), is bringing QAC trainings to interested organizations this February and March.

If your organization is establishing a QAC, you must send a representative to attend one of the trainings below — ideally the individual(s) who will be setting up and running the QAC. There is no max on the number of organization representatives who can attend. To view the training calendar and to RSVP, click here.
