CPC Participates in the Complete The Count Campaign for Census 2020
On Tuesday, January 14, 2020, CPC participated in the Complete the Count Campaign for Census 2020! This citywide campaign is the nation’s largest and most diverse coordinated municipal campaign to achieve a complete and accurate count in the 2020 Census. Mayor De Blasio, along with NYC Census 2020 Director Julie Menin, Council members Carlos Menchaca and Carlina Rivera and others, were on stage speaking about the importance of getting every New Yorker to be counted. The city will be making a $6-$8 million dollar investment in getting the word out, with $3 million dedicated to local and ethnic media outlets. There is a lot at stake for New York, including the loss of Congressional representation as well as millions of dollars in federal funding.
