Join the AFL-CIO, affiliate unions, constituency groups and allied partners for a #LaborCounts Census Week of Action. AFL-CIO encourages partner organizations to join us throughout the week of May 4–10 in reaching out to union members and households across the country to ensure they get counted in the 2020 census.

AFL-CIO members are diverse and representative of many communities that are among the country’s hardest to count. Their members come from different ethnic and racial backgrounds, have varied immigration statuses, speak many languages, live in differing family sizes, and are part of a variety of communities—making it critical we do our part to ensure a fair and accurate count of every union member and their household.
In the face of the public health crisis brought on by the coronavirus (COVID-19), ensuring a fair and accurate count of every person living in the United States presents a particular uphill battle; however, despite these obstacles, the AFL-CIO and their partners throughout the country are dedicated to participating in this Labor Census Week of Action as a part of our commitment to making sure our community is accurately counted in the 2020 census.
