Now that it is officially 2020, the urgency around making sure everyone knows about the Census is heightened. Please communicate with your family, neighbors, clients, employees, schools, and our entire diverse community about the importance of participating in the Census, ESPECIALLY those families with young children.
Remember, the Census counts our population and households, providing the basis for reapportioning congressional seats, redistricting, and distributing more than $675 billion in federal funds annually to support states, counties and communities’ vital programs — impacting housing, education, transportation, employment, health care and public policy.
Let’s work together to ensure a complete count in Cobb County! We are happy to provide you with electronic or hard copy flyers, attend events, and other information for you to share. Please contact MIC Board Member Carolyn Turner via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
