2020 Census is Coming – Help Shape Our Future!
Every ten years, the U.S Census counts every person across the country. Your response helps shape many different aspects of your community, including health clinics, fire departments, schools, even roads and highways.
The next Census is in Spring 2020. Let’s ensure our community is counted so we can put these resources to good use here at home!

A VOICE FOR CALIFORNIA
The 2020 Census will determine the number of representatives California has in the U.S. House of Representatives and the number of votes we have in the Electoral College. It will also be used to redraw State Assembly and Senate boundaries.
The Census is Safe & Confidential
Information collected during the 2020 Census can’t be shared or used against you in any way. Your information is only used to generate statistics. It will not be shared with immigration or law enforcement agencies, and it cannot be used to determine your eligibility for government benefits.
