#Do2in2020: Vote and Be Counted
We need you to sound the alarm in Black communities. We are in danger of having a massing black undercount and we must be counted before September 30th! In some places, the count in Black communities is estimated to be 10-15% below the national response rate. This means if the census ended today, the undercount of Black people would be 2-3x more than 2010!!! This would decimate funding in some of our communities that need it the most.
U.S. Census enumerators have been deployed to continue the nonresponse follow up, but everyone still has the option to complete the process online, by phone or by mail.
HERE IS WHAT WE ARE ASKING UNITY ’20 PARTNERS TO DO!
