The 2020 Census is less than a year away. Have you made an outreach plan?
Learn how to prepare for the census and what you can do to get involved in your community. Asian Americans Advancing Justice-Atlanta and Georgia AAPI Complete Count Committee have created a website with 19 in-language materials for the census: http://www.aapicensusga.org/
According to the United States Constitution, the federal government is legally required to count all living persons in the country. However, the Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander (AANHPI) community have historically been undercounted.
We aim to fight for an accurate count of AANHPIs in the 2020 Census. The U.S. Census and American Community Survey are opportunities for the government to accurately count AANHPI communities and appropriately allocate resources and services. Without this data, we have seen that it is easy for swaths of our community to go unseen and uncounted. An accurate count of our community in the census is necessary if government services are to be provided to our people and decision-makers are to understand our importance.
