Alliance San Diego is working to ensure all San Diegans are counted in the upcoming 2020 Census. The decennial census is mandated by the Constitution, and will take place again on April 1, 2020. The goal is to count the entire population of the United States. The data generated by the census is used for reapportionment of congressional seats, redistricting at the federal, state and local levels, as well as distribution of federal funds to support vital programs.
We need everyone to be counted in order to get the resources, programs, and representation necessary to protect and grow our community. Alliance San Diego is currently reaching out in hard-to-count communities to educate and motivate residents in these communities to participate in the 2020 Census. If you are interested in being part of our team, apply for a canvassing position! It’s time for San Diego to stand up and be heard, be counted and belong!
