ACNJ has been working since last year to inform the public about the importance of an accurate Census count in 2020. Not only does the Census help inform our reports such as Kids Count, it also helps, it also helps the federal government decide how to allocate funds and informs how many seats we will have in the U.S. House of Representatives.
Now, with one month to go, we are ramping up our efforts to spread the word on the importance of this Constitutionally-mandated count and working to ensure that everyone gets counted.
