Hello neighbors,

The US Census door-to-door visits will end September 30. We have a short window to make sure everyone is counted.

Currently, the self-response rate in the City of Miramar is 70.4%. We need all residents to complete the census survey as soon as possible.

The census represents an important opportunity for residents to provide information that dictates the allocation of federal dollars and influences everything from infrastructure investments to education programs like free and reduced lunch to public health-care spending. The data is also used when deciding the boundaries of legislative districts.

People who do not self-report their information are usually visited by a Census Bureau worker.

The Census Bureau strongly encourages the public to respond online at 2020census.gov. Households can respond online or by phone in English or 12 other languages.

For more information, call 844-330-2020 or visit 2020census.gov.

September is Hunger Action Month
This is observed annually by Feeding America. The City of Miramar, Feeding South Florida (“FSF”), and other advocates from around the country are taking action to raise awareness and fight hunger. Now more than ever, we’re asking residents and businesses to “GO ORANGE” in support of Feeding South Florida’s efforts to end hunger in our community. There are many ways that you can raise awareness and show our support for this initiative. Sharing, volunteering, pledging to advocate, fundraising and donating are just a few ideas for taking action this month.

Recognizing Women's Voting Rights
On August 26, 1920, the 19th Amendment was ratified and became a part of the US Constitution guaranteeing and protecting women's constitutional right to vote.

The year 2020 marks the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment marking the largest expansion of democracy in the history of our country.

This historic centennial offers an unparalleled opportunity to commemorate a milestone of democracy and to explore its relevance to the issues of equal rights today. 
Grandparents Day
A national day to recognize how special grandparents are to the family. Do something special for your grandparents! A special lunch, brunch, gifts, hugs and kisses. The smallest gesture will surely make them smile.
US Census 2020
Currently the City of Miramar has a 70.4% response rate and I am encouraging the presidents of our HOA’s, and property managers of our Condos & Apartment buildings to allow US Census workers access to their communities.

I urge every Miramar resident to make sure their household responds to the Census online at 2020census.gov. or by phone.

We are counting on you Miramar, so make yourself count.

A complete and accurate 2020 Census count is more important than ever as we continue to see the public health and economic impacts of COVID-19. Federal funding based on Census data is allocated towards hospitals, health clinics, schools, community development projects, and so much more. The Census touches every life, every day. 

Make Yourself Count!
