As you can see from the image, you can do the 2020 online! You also have the option of doing it by phone or by mail, which can at least ensure many people are counted. The Census Count is one of the most important things we can do as a people (you don’t even need to be a “citizen”) in the United States. It is even more important in an era where Republicans don’t want us to be counted and heard. Simply put, the truth and what the people want is Trumpism’s kryptonite. Accurate data would help minority groups, people of color, the LGBTQ+ community, and so on in numerous ways. Better schools, healthcare, government services and statistics all help to end oppression, a crude device Republicans have always relied on to stay in power. In case you didn’t know, for the first time ever, LGBTQ+ people will be included in the census. However, it is limited in that this comes in the form as to what your relationship status is: unmarried or married, same sex or opposite sex? Nevertheless, it is still a very important step towards eventually counting everyone in full, and a reminder that even with the most corrupt administration in place, we can still keep progressing forward.
