week is Black Census Week, and with the COVID-19 pandemic affecting
our day-to-day lives, it is even more critical that there be a full and
complete Census count.
Visit 2020census.gov to get started.
The impacts of this pandemic have been compounded for the Black community, but we must not let this moment exclude us from the Census. Now more than ever, your participation in the Census will help determine the level of federal funding our communities receive for the amenities that are so vital to our well-being; such as good roads, schools, libraries, public parks and more.
In these difficult times, one of the most important things you can do is to Be Counted! You can complete the census online, by mail or by phone.

Kwanzaa is the time of year when African Americans come together as a community to celebrate our culture and reaffirm our
African heritage. It is done by reflecting, reassessing, rewarding and rejoicing in an atmosphere of peace, respect and unity.
Please come and bring people with you. If possible, wear African attire.
