Census Day is here!  Spread the word! The 2020 Census is so important as it helps determine funding for programs in your city and state. The Census Bureau admits that it undercounted 2.2 million children during the last Census, with minorities missing most of all. During this Census, be sure you and your children are counted! 

"We Count! A 2020 Census Counting Book, which features engaging stories about and illustrations of families living in the United States, is meant to be read aloud to young children so they can learn to count. At the same time, its simple yet clear instructions help grown-ups to correctly tally the members of their households and understand the importance of being counted. Available in seven languages (and counting), it presents a vivid, inclusive American tapestry."
