National Census Action Day Urges Participation to Help Our Diverse Communities Get the Resources They Deserve
People across our community will come together in caravans across LA County to promote census participation. Neighborhoods with lower participation rates will be encouraged to use their voice to secure vital resources that support families. From the Antelope Valley to South LA, Pomona to Long Beach and neighborhoods in between, caravans will take place as community groups drive together, honking and cheering with the message that participating in Census 2020 is now more important than ever.
More than 30 caravans will be taking place throughout the day across LA County from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., with a focus on communities with low census response rates.
