Take the Census


Black or white, rich or poor, urban or rural: every person deserves to be heard, counted, and supported. The U.S. Census determines how money and power are assigned by counting how many people there are to serve in each community, city, and state. Every person has the right to make their voice heard and ensure that their families, their neighbors, and their communities have the resources they need. 

Census participation is power: By taking the census, you help your friends and family get the resources they need. You set the forces in motion for better representation. You have the power to make sure your community counts. 

Taking the census is secure, easy, and quick, and you can complete it on your own — online, over the phone, or by mail — all without having to meet someone in person.
