Our children are relying on us: Complete the Census

Source: Inland Empire Community News

As a new mother to three infants, I immediately hoped for what every parent in our community wants for their children: the best and brightest future for our children.

That is why, when our family’s Census form arrived in the mail, we made sure to count every person in our home, especially our infant triplets.

It is so important that everyone is counted in the 2020 Census—especially our children under five. Oftentimes, parents with young children do not realize they need to include all children. In fact, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, nearly 1 million children (4.6% of children under the age of 5) were not counted in the 2010 Census.
