2020 Census: Pledge To Be Counted

An accurate count in the 2020 Census is vital to our families, our communities, and to the adult learners supported by our literacy programs.

ProLiteracy says:

The census determines how $800 billion annually is spent on programs affecting schools, housing, health care, and much more. Results also determine the allocation of seats and draw district lines for the U.S. House of Representatives, state legislatures, and local boards. The census will determine these allocations for the next 10 years.

The National Coalition for Literacy (NCL) has launched a Pledge To Be Counted initiative.

The link includes resources that adult literacy programs can use with their students, links to webinars, and more to support census completion. Please take a look—and take the pledge!
