Census 2020

Grassroots Outreach, Education, and Advocacy for a Complete Count

We believe a full, fair, and accurate census, and the collection of useful, objective data about our nation’s people, housing, economy, and communities, is vitally important to equitably determining resources and representation. Massachusetts receives over $10 billion in federal funding for services and programs based on Census counts, including Mass Health, highway planning and construction, special education grants, school lunch programs, Head Start/Early Head Start, health center programs, Low Income Home Energy Assistance, Foster Care, and CHIP. The census has traditionally struggled to get a complete count of low-income communities, particularly those with a high population of communities of color. Ensuring that our communities are properly counted in the 2020 Census is the first step to ensuring that these voters are represented in the redistricting process and policy debate moving forward.

In March 2018, Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross announced the addition of a question about citizenship on the 2020 Census form for the first time since 1950. Asking every household and every person in the country about their citizenship status in the current political environment – when there is no need to do so – will cause fear and may cause hundreds of thousands of people in our communities to avoid the census for fear of being targeted by this administration.
