2020 Census - Our Count

Our past, our present,
our future.

Black people are among the most undercounted populations on the census. And when we’re undercounted, our communities get underfunded and underserved.

We hold the power to reverse this trend and ensure that our communities get the resources we deserve by participating in the 2020 Census. Get counted at my2020Census.gov!

    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

    Here’s just some of what’s at stake:

    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.

    Protect Our Democracy

    Political operatives installed by Trump are trying to shut down the 2020 Census too soon, which would leave millions of Black and Brown people uncounted, unseen, and uncared for by our government for the next decade. Tell Congress to protect the 2020 Census and our democracy in the next COVID relief bill.
