Every ten years, the United States conducts a “Decennial Census” with the goal of determining the distribution of resources and political representation by counting every person in the country.
In Maryland we are working to ensure an accurate 2020 Census Count to understand our communities' needs and secure the essential resources for our everyday lives e.g. transportation needs, education, healthcare. This data will be also critical the process of redrawing our election maps in 2021, and ensuring our state is able to harness the full political power of every person.
