Census 2020: Take action
If we want our communities to be accurately represented in the 2020 Census, it's going to take all of us. The most important way to make sure we get the funding and resources New York City needs is to fill out your Census — and make sure your family, friends, and neighbors fill out theirs, too. Help spread the word by taking the actions below.
- Fill out your Census form when you receive it — and make sure your friends and extended family do the same.
- Sign up to volunteer for the UFT campaign by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Become a Census Ambassador through a New York City Neighborhood Organizing Census Committee.
