Black men are disproportionately undercounted in the census. Our black men and boys matter! Let’s make our brothers count by completing the census now @ https://t.co/MS2JO1Yotx #BlackCensusWeek #Census2020 #CountmeBlack
The 2010 Census undercounted 2.1% of the Black population, resulting in diminished resources for our communities. Undercounts also jeopardize the ability to produce fair maps in redistricting.

A2: we have to ensure that our Black kids are counted in the census because "counting" means better education, better housing, better food options and better lives for our Black kids. They deserve to be seen/counted from birth. #BlackCensusWeek #CountMeBlack #QueerTheCensus https://t.co/vLVKecb6da
A3: We’re already woefully underrepresented in many halls of government—from local to state to federal. An undercount can negatively impact our political representation which matters when it comes to having folk who will fight for resources for our neighborhoods. #BlackCensusWeek https://t.co/W3zccpiYcQ
The Census determines how much of the Head Start Program's $8.3 billion budget goes to fund local public and private agencies to provide child development services for children & families, with a special focus on helping preschoolers. #BlackCensusWeek
Right now there are not enough hospitals, hospital beds, ventilators & medical professionals to serve in the rural south where large numbers of Black families live! The #2020Census is key to changing this #CountMeBlack #BlackCensusWeek @dogonvillage@letetiadj@EJinActionhttps://t.co/c8Gn07JdU0
@ncbcp_bwr #BlackCensusWeek Together Black Women stand for real justice for our sons and daughters! We must ensure adequate resources for programs like community policing which values the life of our babies. #2020Census #CountMeBlack #Census2020 https://t.co/ZAl5bThr0u
@ncbcp_bwr Q3: AA children and families are disproportionately affected by poverty and federal programs designed to alleviate the impact of poverty. Many programs that impact African Americans are based in whole or in part on census-derived data, including. #BlackCensusWeek
A4: We already feel the deadly impacts of implicit bias in healthcare, particularly Black maternal health—a Census undercount will exacerbate that problem. #COVID19 has amplified the disparities in healthcare.
If we’re not counted, we’re not seen.
@ncbcp_bwr The hand that rocks the cradle rules the nation, so black women continue to be the innovators and leaders that you are using all of your platforms (personal & professional) to emphasize the importance of being counted in the #2020Census! #BlackCensusWeek #GetCounted
This includes Black LGBTQ women. This count means we have a once in 10 years opportunity to ensure we get the dollars we need to save our lives. #QueertheCensus #BlackCensusWeek #CountMeBlack #2020Census https://t.co/xhHS7PcMTG
Redistricting and political representation! If we and our loved ones aren't counted where we live, our political power goes elsewhere AND we will have fewer reps in state and federal legislatures. #BlackCensusWeek https://t.co/pf3brS2THz
