Census 2020: Everyone Must Be Counted. Now Is the Time to Act.
We cannot let anyone deter us from being counted in the 2020 U.S. Census.
No matter where you’re from or your nationality. No matter your immigration status or who you live with -- for the U.S. Census, everyone who lives here counts.
And the Census isn't just about representation, but also about funding that is allocated for our schools, highways, hospitals and so much more for the next decade.
CHECK YOUR E-MAIL INBOX FOR A MESSAGE FROM THE CENSUS: The U.S. Census Bureau will continue e-mailing households in low-responding areas to encourage them to respond to the 2020 Census. The Census will continue sending e-mails through September. For more, click HERE.
CBC FOR THE CENSUS: Thank you to the Congressional Black Caucus, Fair Count, The National Urban League and the Black Alliance for Just Immigration for joining me as a part of the “Black America Counts: Emergency Town Hall.” View the virtual town hall HERE.
ROCKDALE HOSTING CENSUS EVENTS WEDNESDAYS: Starting August 12, you can stop by the Nancy Guinn Memorial Library -- 864 Green Street SW, Conyers 30012 -- on scheduled days from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., to complete the quick Census survey and receive a free item. For more, click HERE.
HOW TO IDENTIFY CENSUS TAKERS: Census takers can be easily identified by a valid government ID badge with their photograph, a U.S. Department of Commerce watermark, and an expiration date on the badge. To confirm a Census taker’s identity, the public may contact their regional Census center to speak with a Census Bureau representative.
LOW-RISK CENSUS INTERVIEWS: Census takers are trained to rigorously and universally follow these CDC recommendations to mitigate risk of transmission:
• Wearing of face masks.
• Maintaining social distance of six feet or more.
• Practicing hand hygiene.
• Not entering homes and conducting interviews outside as much as possible or practical.
Household members encountered by Census staff are encouraged to maintain social distances during interviews and practice the CDC’s other recommendations as much as possible.
Everyone Must Be Counted. Now Is the Time to Act.
WE WILL BE COUNTED.
