The Census is mandated in Article 1 of the Constitution, to happen every 10 years so that every person in the United States is counted.
In this episode Diana speaks to New York State Assemblywoman Aravella Simotas about the importance of the 2020 Census and what is at stake when we undercount people in our communities.
Find out what programs are at risk (spoiler alert: SCHOOLS! TRANPORTATION! CONGRESSIONAL REPRESENTATION!) if we don't properly count all of the people who live in our communities and what you can do to help your neighbors be counted.
