Tell Lawmakers to Fully Fund the 2020 Census!

2020 Census
Time Range For Action Alert: 
July 8, 2019 to October 31, 2019

In summer 2019, the Supreme Court ruled that the citizenship question cannot proceed for 2020, rejecting the notion that the purpose of a citizenship question was to improve enforcement of the Voting Rights Act. 

The suggestion of a citizenship question in the census was a scare tactic designed to decrease participation among non-English speaking and immigrant communities. And, while we celebrate the Court’s ruling and are relieved that the question will not appear in the census questionnaire, damage has already been done by instilling fear in the public. Now, it’s vital we double our efforts to ensure the most complete possible census count, with a focus on hard-to-count communities.

Add your name and tell lawmakers in your state to make sure the 2020 Census is conducted fairly and fully funded.
