What is the Census? Why is it important? What kind of questions will I be asked? Do I have to answer all of them? What if my legal status is pending? How will they use my information and how can I be sure my information is safe?
In addition, did you know that you can answer in Spanish online or through a phone call?
We will answer all your Census related questions in our upcoming workshops. Participating in the Census can lead to increased funding for much needed programs, so do your part to help yourself and others by educating yourselves and spreading the word!
These workshops will take place at our center from 10 AM – 11 AM on the following dates:
February 21 & 28
March 6 & 20
For more information, please give us a call at (909) 621-6722.
If you need any reasonable accommodations, please contact us at least 7 days prior to the event.
