Be represented! Your Your Count Matters!
The census is America’s selfie, and gives us a picture who lives in our country. The census is a process that takes place every ten years in which the U.S. Census Bureau needs to get a count of everyone living in the United States. Everyone counts. The census count must include people of ALL ages, cultures, races and ethnic groups, and citizens and non-citizens from every single community in our country.
The results from the 2020 Census will determine how federal funding will be dispersed for dozens of programs that provide essential services to Californians. Census data helps determine how funds are allocated for education, healthcare, housing, transportation, and so much more. Census data also helps determine who represents you on the Congressional and governmental levels.
