The League’s Census Committee will increase citywide participation in the 2020 Census in hard-to-count communities by educating and partnering with local leaders and organizations representing these communities. They seek to minimize undercounting, as occurred in 2010, when nearly one million NYC children went uncounted.

Since its founding in 1919, the League of Women Voters of the City of New York (LWVNYC) has led efforts to increase voter participation and improve city government through election reforms and other legislation. For 100 years, its dedicated members have registered voters, lobbied legislators, advocated on issues, and provided vital information to voters and those who want to vote. Even today, other local organizations working to advance voting rights often send their staff members to the LWVNYC, renowned for its excellent training.
