Tell Albany: It’s Time to Make Brooklyn Count
Don't miss our NY Daily News op-ed on why New York needs to fund Census 2020 outreach now
The United States Census is the ultimate national competition for resources and representation. With $0 of the $40 million needed for community-based Census 2020 outreach delivered by Gov. Cuomo and our leaders in Albany, our borough and state will likely be undercounted, underfunded, and underrepresented for the next decade.
As the largest county in the state, we cannot let this stand. Brooklyn must have the resources for grassroots outreach to ensure the Census is a success and our communities get the resources we need.
Tomorrow we'll be in Albany alongside 200+ advocates from across New York state to make sure Gov. Cuomo and state leaders hear us loud and clear: Fund Census outreach now before we lose millions in funding for our community.
Spread the word today: share our President and CEO Cecilia Clarke’s op-ed in the NY Daily News on Facebook and Twitter, and contact your elected officials directly to tell them to Make Brooklyn Count!
