About the Event

ABOUT THE CENSUS

The Census is something that is done every 10 years since the foundation of the US to

count the people who live in this country, no matter their nationality or immigration status.

Census results determine billions of dollars in federal funding, how many seats each state

receives in the U.S. House of Representatives, and influence how congressional and legislative

districts are drawn in each state.

However, in the last Census in 2010, amongst the Latinx/Hispanic community, at least one

million children were not counted. That is 4.6% of children between the ages of 0 and 5 years

old in the United States. The consequence of that is the amount of funding for schools, for

medical and social services was misappropriated.

The lack of an accurate count of people leaves our communities particularly vulnerable and

perpetuates the inequity and lack of access to opportunities and to a dignified life, that is why

during this census in 2020 La Diáspora Festival is partnering with the Mission Economic

Development Agency and others to promote the participation of people, and we want to count

you in!!!
