TAKE ACTION NOW:
THE WASHINGTON D.C. COMMITMENT MARCH

The Commitment March will take place on the 57th anniversary of the historic March on Washington, where Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his "I Have a Dream" Speech.

IMPORTANT: The Census is about money and power. It is essential that everyone be counted. They can respond by phone. English 844-330-2020 And if they’ve been counted, they should reach out to others to remind them to get counted.
The 2020 Census determines the amount of federal funds New York will receive for the next 10 years. NYC is at risk of losing BILLIONS of dollars (that's BILLIONS with a "B") for the next 10 years. Federal funds that are used for hospitals, medicines, vaccines, schools, and other vital services would be severely limited. Why? Because New Yorkers’ response to the Census is very low (48%). To make matters worse we could also lose 2 Congressional seats. It's vital that we do our part. Spread the message to friends and family. Fill out the Census TODAY!
