2020 Census

Damon K. Jones

The census tells us who we are and where we are going as a nation, and helps our communities determine where to build everything from schools to supermarkets, and from homes to hospitals. It helps the government decide how to distribute funds and assistance to states and localities.

Historically, Black communities are undercounted most because of the distrust in Black communities’ mistrust in the government. The result is the unequal distribution of wealth.
