Dear Filipinos and Puertorriqueños, our count matters.  If we are not counted in this 2020 Census, we will miss out on housing for those affected by Hurricane Maria, healthcare for undocumented and documented immigrants, and quality education for the next generation. Participating in the Census can shape our communities for the next 10 years.  

Share campaign
#WhyWeCount is an initiative to engage Puerto Rican and Filipino communities to share stories and pledge to participate in Census 2020, made possible with the help of New Venture Fund and our community partners.
