(Week of Action)…It is next week.

Local Community leaders and representing over 150 nonprofits and municipalities who are members of the non-partisan Count Me 2020 Coalition are set to activate a Week of Action July 6-10. The week is to encourage individuals to respond to the Census who live and work in neighborhoods which currently have a low Census response rate. As of June 25, there was a 55.4% self –response rate for the 2020 Census in Imperial County. Count Me 202 Coalition’s Week of Action aims to increase the 2020 Census self-response rate to at least 58.5 %, which was the final 2010 Census response rate. After that they want to keep the momentum going to achieve a full population count of Imperial County by the end of the Census response period, which is October 31, 2020.
