An Invitation to Support the Census

by | Feb 13, 2020 | Conference Newsletter

“As the church, we can lift why census participation is critical to the Common Good. And… we can help reach those hard-to-count people and help them understand the link between the data collected and what dollars those numbers equate to – the programs affected. Programs that help so many vulnerable people.”
