Our past, our present, our future.

Black people remain among the least accurately counted populations in the country.

We hold the power to reverse this trend and ensure that our communities get the resources they deserve if we participate in the 2020 Census.

    Our Past

    There is a disturbing history of Black people being undercounted in the Census.

    And those who work hard to suppress the voices and the votes of our communities are also working hard to keep us from participating in the census.

    Approximately 6.5 percent of young Black and Hispanic children were not counted in the 2010 Census. That’s nearly twice the undercount rate for young white children.

    Our Present

    How federal funding is distributed nationwide, including for programs such as SNAP, CHIP, Head Start, and the National School Lunch Program.

    Preserving our history for future generations.

    Where businesses choose to invest in new factories, offices, and other job opportunities.

    How many seats each state gets in the House of Representatives.

    Our Future

    We have the power to reshape our communities for future generations if we participate in the 2020 Census.

    To reduce the risk of a massive undercount in Black communities we need to make sure our folks know what the census is really about and how our communities benefit from participation.

    What will your legacy be?
