Public Comment Period for Citizenship Question

On March 26, 2018 the U.S. Department of Commerce announced its decision to add a citizenship question to the 2020 Census.

The addition of a citizenship question to the 2020 Census threatens the fundamental Constitutional mandate that the Census obtain a complete count of all the nation’s residents. We urge you to let the U.S. Department of Commerce and the U.S. Census Bureau know that our communities reject the inclusion of this question. Submit a public comment to the Federal Register and let your voice be heard!
