With the COVID-19 pandemic affecting our day-to-day lives, it is even more critical that there be a full and complete Census count so our communities are funded properly

Please join The County News as we partner with the National Office of the NAACP to encourage 100% participation in the 2020 Census.

Derrick Johnson, our National President of the NAACP reminds us that the impacts of this pandemic have been compounded for the Black community, but we must not let this moment exclude us from the Census. Now more than ever, your participation in the Census will help determine the level of federal funding our communities receive for the amenities that are so vital to our well-being; such as good roads, schools, libraries, public parks and more.

In these difficult times, one of the most important things you can do is to Be Counted! You can complete the census online, by mail or by phone.
