Census Volunteers Needed

Census Day will take place on April 1, 2020.  Why is this a racial issue?  Charmaine Runes of the Urban Institute explains “Black communities across the United States have been undercounted for decades in decennial censuses.”  Since the census contributes to the determination of the number of seats each state has in the U.S. House of Representatives and is also used to distribute billions in federal funds to local communities, it is critical that the count be as accurate as possible.  The Princeton YMCA is calling for volunteers to distribute information to Princeton households on Saturday, February 8.  Click here to register and see information below and share widely.
