Miami, Fl. — Today April 1, 2020, is Census Day throughout the United States. It is a key reference date to remind us all about the importance of the Census in our lives. Every 10 years, the Census Bureau collects important information about every single person living in the United States. The information is used by our government as a guide to reinvest our tax dollars back into communities. It is how the government decides to spend funds collected through tax revenue, including individual income taxes. Census data is used to invest in local communities’ education, transportation, small businesses, health care and more.
With each person counted, the Federal government reinvests a minimum of $1,500 dollars into our state and local economies. When we don’t count ourselves, our communities suffer. Our small businesses get fewer resources. By not counting ourselves, we are sending our hard-earned taxes to other communities. April 1, 2020, is no fool’s day!
It is the day we all commit to action! The day we all pledge to be counted! It’s easy, it’s confidential and it is critically needed! To complete your Census, go online at https://my2020census.gov/ or call 1-844-330-2020 (English) 1-844-477-2020 (Creole)
