Census Info

The 2020 census is here and you are a part of that count. Every ten years the government takes a count of U.S citizens. These numbers are used to allocate resources to your family and your community. Resources that contribute to the businesses in your community, the number of elected representatives your community has, in addition to the amount of funding that goes into your neighborhood for things like school lunches, improving roads, and educational programs in your area. Historically, Black people, as well as indigenous people and other people of color have been undercounted, but now, the Census will be administered online, so we have the power to ensure that does not happen this time.

Michelle recently took the Census and it only took her five minutes. Now her roommate and her are counted in their apartment on the westside of Atlanta. They only need to know your birthday, address, and if you reside anywhere else. It is so important that we count everyone- roommates, small children, young people in college, our elders, undocumented immigraants and more. WE is committed to working to ensure a complete count of all people currently living in the U.S., especially in our hard-to count neighborhoods. Even if you have not received it by mail, you can visit https://my2020census.gov/login and take the Census. It takes less than five minutes to complete. Get counted today!
