About the Event
It is a mission to ensure Black Americans are properly counted on the 2020 Census. The first United States Census was conducted in 1790 to determine the number of congressional members in the House of Representatives. This was especially important for southern states with thousands of Black slaves. In 2010 a probable 800,000 Blacks were not counted. A precise count is important because 900 to 700 billion dollars are allocated by the federal government due to Census data. The top Five Programs that depend on Census data are:
- Federal Direct Student Loans
- Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)
- Highway and Transportation Fund.
April 1: Census Day is observed nationwide. By this date, every home will receive an invitation to participate in the 2020 Census. Once the invitation arrives, you should respond for your home in one of three ways: online, by phone, or by mail. When you respond to the census, you'll tell the Census Bureau where you live as of April 1, 2020. Please click on the link to participate.
