Leaders and Community Groups Unite to Support California Complete Count – Census 2020

State leaders, key advocates and community members came together to highlight California’s efforts to ensure a complete and accurate Census count 2020.

“California is determined to ensure we achieve a complete census count. We’ve started early and are committing more resources than any other state on a robust outreach and engagement effort to reach all Californians,” said Ditas Katague, Director, California Complete Count – Census 2020. “Our collaborative partnerships throughout the state will make a difference in 2020, which may be the most difficult Census count yet for California.”

“I want to make the Census go viral in California. My district and California as a whole have some of the hardest to count populations in the country, but we’re going to make sure everyone counts,” said Speaker of the California State Assembly Anthony Rendon. “The Census is coming and it’s important. We all need to use our good reputations to remind everyone in every community to participate.”

The California State Senate and Assembly each have select committees on the Census, which are co-chaired by Senators Dr. Richard Pan and Tom Umberg and Assemblymember Marc Berman, respectively.

“We need to be sure everyone is counted, because for every person undercounted, California and local governments will lose significant federal funding and our voices won’t be heard through representation in government,” said Dr. Richard Pan, state senator representing the Sacramento area. “As we confront the mammoth task of counting all people living in California, the work we do now to prepare and the resources we devote to the effort will be instrumental to an accurate census.”

“The 2020 Census will shape California’s future for the next decade. Accurate Congressional representation and billions of dollars in federal funding are at stake," said Assemblymember Marc Berman, chair of the Assembly Select Committee on the Census. "California is a big, bold, beautiful, diverse state – and because of that, we’re also the hardest to count in the country. With 365 days until the start of the 2020 Census, I am grateful for all of our community partners who are actively engaging our most vulnerable and hard-to-count populations whose participation is critical to our success in securing a complete and accurate count of all Californians.”

Working through local governments, Tribal Governments, community-based organizations and media, the State is funding efforts that will complement work being done nationally by the U.S. Census Bureau.

In addition, the State has agreements to distribute money to County Governments, Tribal Governments and County Offices of Education.

Once each decade, the U.S. Census Bureau attempts to count every person in the United States. The data collected by the decennial Census determines the number of seats each state has in the U.S. House of Representatives and is used to distribute billions of dollars in federal funds to state and local governments.

"As one of the top ten Hard to Count counties in the 2010 census, Sacramento recognizes that those deemed Hard to Count are in fact our most diverse communities and our diversity is our strength! In order to count the hard to count, Sacramento, like many other counties throughout the state, will rest on the power of our diverse communities to drive our outreach strategies and ensure a fair, accurate, and Complete Count for the resources and representation our communities deserve."- Gabby Trejo, Co-Chair, Sacramento Complete Count Committee and Executive Director, Sacramento ACT.

The California Complete Count – Census 2020 Mission is ensure that Californians get their fair share of federal resources and Congressional representation by encouraging the full participation of all Californians in Census 2020.
