The 2020 census will determine funding for education, infrastructure and political representation in our neighborhoods for the next decade. In total, hundreds of billions of dollars of federal aid are allocated based on the census every year.
Faith in New York has been working hard to increase participation in the census because we see it as key to our justice work. Making sure that all of our people across the five boroughs are counted is one step towards ensuring an equitable distribution of resources in New York City -- a city with incredibly unequal distributions of income and educational opportunities.
