Taking Action to Ensure a Fair, Accurate, and Complete 2020 Census

The decennial census is a cornerstone of our democracy, determining Congressional districts and driving key decisions made by federal and local government, business, nonprofits, and philanthropy around the allocation of funding and where services are provided. Due to a number of factors, including the shift to online data collection and the climate of fear among communities that are traditionally some of the hardest to count, the threat of an inaccurate 2020 Census is very real. When children, people of color, immigrants, low-income families, and other vulnerable populations are undercounted, they are effectively made invisible. 

The region is mobilizing to get-out-the-count in 2020. WRAG invites members to join the 2020 Census Working Group to help leverage the resources of local philanthropy and other stakeholders to ensure an accurate and complete census count in the region.
