Census Red Alert
The Census Bureau is halting efforts on September 30th, a full month earlier than planned. Trump thinks cutting the time needed to count all residents will help him politically. But an undercount will hurt states like NY, which could loose crucial federal aid along with up to two Congressional seats.
Now more than ever, it’s crucial that you fill out a Census form and ask that all your friends, relatives, neighbors and others do the same.
