As before the 2010 Census, when LDF launched its national education campaign, Count on Change 2010, LDF seeks to ensure that Black Americans are fairly counted in the 2020 Census. Focusing on Black communities that face the greatest risk of omission from the decennial census, LDF, in partnership with other national, state, and local groups are working to increase Black people’s response to the Census count. This once a decade enumeration of all people living in the United States has significant consequences for their access to federal and state funding, political representation, and more.
