Black Census Week

March 23-29 is Black Census Week. We have a responsibility to make sure that black communities receive resources they need. Find our more information on how the Census impacts our communities. Fill out your census to ensure that you will Be Counted.


April 1, 2020 is Census Day. Participating in the census is vital as it determines resources for your community that include:

  • federal funding,
  • congressional representation
  • funding for new schools, hospitals, roads and more.

The Census can be completed online, through the mail, or by phone, making it convenient for every citizen to participate.
