This meeting will provide an update on resources, tools, and unified strategy for frontline organizations working in “hard to count” communities as they #MakeBrooklynCount in Census 2020. The next meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, August 13th, 2019 (RSVP here).

The decennial census is critical to our democracy. Census data inform the allocation of over $800 billion in federal funds, the apportionment of elected representatives, and the redistricting of state and federal election districts.  Brooklyn is considered the “hardest to count” county in all of New York State, and had the lowest response rate in 2010 among all counties nationwide with populations over 500,000. The Brooklyn Complete Count Committee is determined to #MakeBrooklynCount in 2020 by maximizing local coordination, messaging, and outreach to communities across the borough.
