The purpose of this guide is to assist the staff and leaders of community organizations, especially those that organize immigrants and communities of color, in understanding the importance of the 2020 Census. This information can be used to help organizations move community members, who may be reluctant to participate in the census, from a place of fear and caution to greater strength and a place of power. The guide contains basic information about the census. It includes how to engage our communities with effective messages that could also move current and future campaigns.
