#FaithfulCensus Week of Action: June 1st-June 5th!
The 2020 Census is here, and faith communities across the country are working hard to ensure every person is counted. Amid the COVID-19 crisis, there are new challenges to a full count of the nation, and it’s critical that faith communities remain committed to getting out the count among historically undercounted and hard-to-count communities.
As trusted messengers, faith leaders have a unique ability to encourage census participation. Faith leaders can powerfully communicate the message that responding to the 2020 Census is an act of faith that shows your love for your neighbor because an accurate count ensures access to quality schools, hospitals, roads and services that make a difference in people’s lives.
