Participate in Your Democracy

 

The 2020 Census is underway – make sure you’re counted.

Your participation helps determine the distribution of political power and money from the federal government to our communities.

The 2020 Census will determine congressional representation, inform hundreds of billions in federal funding every year, and provide data that will impact communities for the next decade.  Counts impact programs ranging from school lunches, to highway construction, to education.

 

Register to Vote - it is your right, and your responsibility.

The people we put in powerful spaces facilitate the change we demand, or block the future we deserve.

Check your registration, find your polling location, understand ID requirements, and learn more about the election process.
