The Road To Recovery
Our collective road to recovery from COVID-19 is going to be long, but we will get there. And when we do, we need to be sure that our communities have thriving local economies: fully funded healthcare in case we get sick, schools that are not overcrowded, and programs for all our kids who need them. Overall, the 2020 Census will allocate more than $1.5 trillion annually through more than 300 federal programs that impact the lives of families everywhere. The programs run the gamut from funding for healthcare to programs that fund recreation activities and affordable housing. If our communities are not counted, we will have less power and resources. If we are not counted, we give others permission to count us out.
That’s why E Pluribus Unum has partnered with Fair Count to encourage a fair and accurate census count throughout the American South. We see the potential for transformation and we are responding to this moment by empowering community members to get counted.
