Map The Count
2020 Census Week of Action
The 2020 census count has already begun—are you prepared?
I can’t overstate how vital the census is to communities of color across the nation. A complete and accurate count would ensure that the appropriate funds—up to billions of dollars—are allocated to local, state and tribal governments to improve the lives of our people. access to quality education, healthcare, good roads, and even the number of congressional seats our communities receive are all at stake. That’s why we all have the civic responsibility to be counted.
To prepare our members and supporters for the big count ahead, NAACP is inviting you, friend, to take part in our census week of action from February 24 to February 28.
This action-packed week will include:
- important discussions around what our communities can do to prepare for the census
- trainings on the launch of our new “mapping the count” tool that will revolutionize the ability to count harder to reach communities
- resources for communicating with state and national government officials to ensure they’re held accountable to lead an accurate and efficient process.
Join us for this critical week of action. your participation could make the difference in ensuring the 2020 census is the most accurate one yet.
