US Census: Good News, Bad News

The good news on the US Census is that, thanks to the tireless efforts of activists and advocates, the Trump administration has been thwarted in their attempt to end data collection early. That means you have until Saturday, October 31 to complete your 2020 census.

The bad news is that DC is still lagging badly in our response rate. We’re 13th from the BOTTOM of the list of 52 US states (or future states) for Census response rates. BILLIONS of dollars in DC’s federal food, health, and housing aid all depend on an accurate and complete count.

If you haven't completed the Census, you can do so right now online at: https://my2020census.gov/It only takes about 10 minutes. 

If you have already responded, remind your friends and neighbors to do the same by posting the link to any neighborhood listservs or groups you belong to: https://my2020census.gov/.
