Make a difference today! Please, take this time to complete your Census 2020 questionnaire. Official Census Day was April 1, but you can complete your form any time. Choose any one of the three following ways to respond:
- Online. Look for your letter from the Census that provides an internet link and a personalized Census ID# to participate. This is a great opportunity to involve your children! Get started online at 2020census.gov
- By phone: Call 844-330-2020 for English, 844-468-2020 for Spanish. You can complete the census by phone in 14 languages or TDD. Phone numbers are here: 2020census.gov/en/ways-to-respond/responding-by-phone.html
- By mail. Some people will automatically get a census form in the mail to complete by hand. Later, if you haven’t responded online or by phone, you will also receive a form in the mail.
You should not be asked to fill out a census form by email, and you will never be asked to provide your social security number, bank account numbers, or other private security information. You should not be asked to fill out the census in order to qualify for payment, including a stimulus check. If you are, ignore it. That is a scam. There is no citizenship question on the census. According to law, the results cannot go to law enforcement, ICE, or your landlord. It is safe and secure.
Please feel free to share this invitation with your family, friends, and community. And don’t forget to fill out your own Census, too!
We are proud to join faith communities across our region and the nation in working together for a full and equitable 2020 Census. While outreach looks very different this time around due to varying degrees of stay-at-home practices nationwide, it has never been easier for households to respond online, by phone, or mail. As our friends at Faith Action Network put it so well, “It takes just 10 minutes and impacts the next 10 years of funding for our communities’ healthcare, schools, access to public transportation, and more. This is our one shot to shape the next 10 years!” Thank you to our friends at FAN, and leaders throughout communities of many faiths, for your leadership in uniting faith communities to bring about equitable 2020 census for everyone.
