OUR BABIES ARE COUNTING ON YOU!
When it comes to the 2020 Census, EVERYONE counts, especially our babies. Do you know that in 2010, over 1 MILLION children were not counted in the census? And of all the states, California had the highest undercount for children ages 0-5.
We missed out on BILLIONS of dollars that fund critical resources that our children need! The census funds WIC, food stamps, children’s health insurance, child care, housing programs, public schools, Head Start and over 50 other public programs and services.
With so much uncertainty in the world today, we have to do our best to ensure a solid future for our children. Take the Census now so our community gets our fair share of resources for the next 10 years.
And remember to include everyone living at your address on your Census form. Each family is unique, be sure to count ALL children living at your address, including babies, nieces, nephews, grandchildren, foster children, and even your friend that you are helping out.
Your information is safe and our babies are counting on us.
