We're coming together to be counted.

Washington Census Alliance is a statewide coalition of 55 organizations led by and working in communities of color. We advocate for the unique needs of our communities.

Together, we’re launching an unprecedented relational organizing campaign to ensure that historically undercounted communities throughout Washington state are counted in the 2020 Census.

A fair and accurate count in the 2020 Census will be the first step in ensuring that historically marginalized communities receive the resources and representation they need.

5 things to know about the 2020 Census

Complete it starting March 2020.

Starting March 12, people will receive letters in the mail with instructions on how to complete the 2020 Census.

Everyone should be counted.

Regardless of immigration or citizenship status, including kids, seniors, military members, and people experiencing homelessness.

There is NO citizenship question.

The 2020 Census will not ask if you’re a U.S. citizen.

Census answers are confidential.

By law, census answers cannot be shared with ICE, other law enforcement, public assistance programs, or other agencies.

Avoid a scam.

The census and its staff will never ask for social security numbers, bank information, or money.
