A.K. Smiley Public Library has partnered with the San Bernardino Area League of Women Voters to present a free online Zoom workshop about the 2020 U.S. Census. View online the recording of the workshop, shared on the Library’s Facebook page, which took place Thursday, August 20.
The state of California has only had a 65% response rate to the 2020 Census. A census is more than a population count. It’s an opportunity to shape your community’s future. Census results determine how many seats each state gets in Congress. Results are also used to improve communities by improving schools, emergency services, social services, freeways, roads and bridges. It’s all about fair representation. Every voice counts!
Federal law keeps your census answers strictly confidential. You will not be asked about your citizenship status or political affiliation. Your answers can never be used against you in any way.
The 2020 Census is counting every person living in the United States and five U.S. territories. It takes less that 10 minutes to complete. You are able to respond online, by phone, or by mail.
Get answers to these questions and many more at the August 20th online workshop:
- Is it safe to take part in the 2020 Census?
- Will they ask about my immigration status?
- Will my information be kept confidential?
- What happens if I don’t answer the questions?
- Is the Census politically motivated?
- Should I list all the children in my home?
