The 2020 Decennial Census is fast approaching, and we are hard at work to ensure that all of us in Contra Costa are counted!
This effort is important because Census information is used to determine the number of Congress members each state will have and how $675 billion in federal funds flow to tribal, state and local governments. These counts are also crucial to decisions at state and local government levels that affect our communities, e.g. siting of schools, hospitals, libraries, and other public services.
This is a collective effort! Join us to learn about the importance of the census and how you can make a profound difference in your community. We have two important meetings in West County in June.
