You voted, now it’s time to exercise another patriotic duty in celebration of Fourth of July and our great democracy: the Census!
The 2020 Census is underway. With significant potential impacts to community resources, infrastructure, and government representation, filling out the census is an important task for EVERY U.S. household. Census results will impact programs across communities, from school lunches to roads and water and waste systems, and from wildfire preparation to providing housing assistance for older adults or preventing child abuse. Data will be used to draw congressional district lines, direct billions of dollars in federal funding and inform research and business decisions.
The census matters! However, counting everyone in the United States is a massive undertaking, and census workers need our help getting it done. Your census survey can be filled out online, by mail or over the phone, and it takes only minutes to complete.
