Commit to Be Counted in 2020! Me +3

Census Day — the kickoff of the decennial U.S. Census — is April 1, 2020. It is the day that we say as a community: “We Count in MN!”

The Census is about you. Every ten years, the government counts every member of your community to decide how much money it needs for services, resources, and infrastructure updates. More than $675 billion in federal funds are distributed back to states and local communities using Census data — for things like health care, jobs, schools, roads, and small businesses.

Being counted in the 2020 Census is one of the ways that we can make sure the government doesn’t erase us — by showing them that we exist and getting the resources we deserve.

It is safe. Census data now is the most secure that it can be. You can’t find any information that would identify you as an individual, including your individual home address or citizenship status. Private information is never published.

It’s time to take back our Census! Take the Me +3 pledge and commit to being counted in the 2020 census (and getting 3 friends/family members/neighbors to do the same!).
