Creatives for the Count: The U.S. Census x For Freedoms SPOTS OPEN

Limited Capacity seats available

The next Decennial Census is happening in 2020. This once-a-decade count of the population is mandated by the U.S. Constitution, and determines the allocation of over $800 billion of government funding into communities, how political district lines are drawn, how many Representatives each state will get in the House of Representatives, and much more for the next 10 years. But it only works if everyone is counted, and many communities — like immigrants, people of color, and young children — are at risk of being undercounted, meaning they’ll receive less representation in Congress and funding for vital programs and services.

Band together with us for 90 minutes (or more) and bring your enthusiasm, your laptop and/or any creative tools and supplies, and — most importantly — your ideas. Make art, content, and other fun stuff with us that will get out the count and make sure every voice in the U.S. is heard.
