2020 Census Applicant Days - Work for the Census!

Friday, Feb 21, 9:00am to 12:00pm

April 1, 2020 is Census Day and only 6 weeks from now! The Census Bureau needs to hire a lot of Madison residents to ensure a complete count of everyone who lives here - especially people who will not initially participate by phone, mail, or website. Recruiters from the U.S. Census will be spreading awareness and helping people apply on the spot with Applicant Days. Following up with every missed individual requires the work of many Census Takers. It's a great part-time job that will pay $17-$23/hour in Dane County. (ages 18 and up)

Joker

R / 135 min / Crime, Drama, Thriller / USA /2019

“Joker” revolves around the iconic arch-nemesis and is an original, standalone story not seen before on the big screen. The exploration of Arthur Fleck (Joaquin Phoenix), a man disregarded by society, is not only a gritty character study, but also a broader cautionary tale.
