"April 1 is Census Day. With the recent measures placed through physical distancing, our outreach efforts around the census have changed; however, our message remains the same. By answering just 10 easy questions from the comfort of your home you can do your part in making sure that your community, and its needs are visible. You can respond to the census online, or on the phone today!   
 
"The Census is all about community; no matter what your economic background, legal status, or political views, all people should be counted. It is about the people we live with, our community spaces such as parks, schools, and libraries, it is about feeling represented and seen. We hope that as we take this time staying indoors with our loved ones, and being in our communities, working, and exploring new hobbies, that you also take some time out to fill out the Census."*

You do not need a "special number" to respond! Just your address.
In these times of uncertainty and physical distancing, standing together is critical. Completing the census and getting out the count are two actions you can take to support your community and participate fully in our democracy during the coronavirus crisis. More than $800 billion of federal funding for states and localities is also allocated according to official census counts. This means that decisions and funds for schools, hospitals, roads, infrastructure, and other matters of daily life.
 
The 2020 census will be the most-challenging count attempted so far. Not only is our population at an all-time high, but Congress has also underfunded the effort. That means we will need your help and the help of your community to make sure that every person is counted.
