THE CENSUS IMPACTS COVID-19
Black communities have been disproportionately affected by national crises throughout history: Hurricane Katrina, the Great Recession of 2008, and now the Coronavirus pandemic. Our communities are hit the hardest and don’t get the bailouts or support that other communities receive. We must do everything we can to protect ourselves, now and in the future. Take the 2020 Census.
We know Black women are always going to hold it down, are resourceful and have always been the backbone of our community, especially in moments of crisis. We can’t rely on our government for all the solutions, but we must hold them accountable to support Black families during this moment of crisis.
The census is one way to make our voices heard and ensure we get our fair share of public resources our loved ones need to thrive– funded by our taxpayer dollars. Our future depends on the 2020 census. The census will impact us all for generations.
