Contra Costa Kicks Off Census 2020 Campaign

Contra Costa County launched its Census 2020 Awareness Campaign with a “Complete Count” kickoff event for the public, media and community partners on April 2, 2019 at 12:30 pm at the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano located at 4010 Nelson Avenue, Concord, CA.

April 1st marked one year until Census Day, the day the U.S. Census Bureau takes the census or count of every person living in the United States once every 10 years. The Census impacts everyone in how we are served and represented.

This Census 2020 count determines how many representatives each state has in Congress and how over $675 billion in federal funds are distributed to tribal, state and local governments each year. George Washington University estimates that for every person not counted, California and its local governments lose an estimated $2,000 a year per individual. Join us to make sure that everyone is counted.
