Unlike voting, you can be any age and do the Census. Everyone counts, even babies. Yes that’s right. When newborn babies and children aren’t counted, our communities lose money for hospitals, child care, food assistance, schools, Head Start, early childhood development, housing support, early intervention services for children with special needs, and children’s health insurance. So kids, tell the adults in your life that you count!

From March 12 – October 31, 2020 set up a Census Hub in your organization, business, school, or apartment building and invite your community to come safely take the 2020 Census.

You’ll need: 

An internet-enabled computer or tablet set to 2020Census.gov

Signage that lets people know they should COME TO YOUR CENSUS at your location, which you can download HERE

Let OCEIA know you’ll be hosting a 2020 Census hub—and if you’ll be offering any in-person or multilingual translation support, so they can feature you on the San Francisco Census Help Center map
