Why take the Census?
- Even if you can’t vote, the census is a way to participate in our democracy and ensure you’re not erased. Census counts determine, for example, the number of representatives each state gets.
- Your responses to the 2020 Census are safe, secure, and protected by federal law. Your answers can only be used to produce statistics. They cannot be used against you by any government agency or court in any way—not by the FBI, DHS, or ICE.
- When we fill out the census form, and we make sure that all of us are counted, we can help our communities get the schools, hospitals, and roads we need. If we don’t get counted, we don’t count. And we’ll miss out for the next 10 years.
EVERYONE COUNTS – take the census!!
