Shape Your Future: The 2020 Census (w/Asian Language tags)

Can one girl in a small town, an architect in a major city, and a suburban high school coach shape the future of the United States?

Yes, they can. Because every ten years, the census gives us that power.

You can shape your future by responding to the 2020 Census. Where do we need new roads to make our lives easier? Where will new school programs help our children thrive? Where could a new health clinic benefit neighborhoods?

The 2020 Census will inform these decisions and shape how billions of dollars will be distributed to communities like yours each year. And in 2020, you can respond to the census online, by phone, or by mail. It’s easy, safe and important.

Make sure you and everyone you know is counted. Now is the time for you to get involved – your community needs you. Together, we can educate and excite, inspire and make sure every voice is heard. Together…. we can shape our future.
