As the 2020 Census hits mailboxes, I wanted to remind folks that this is more than just a population count. It's an opportunity to shape the future of our communities, especially for traditionally undercounted people like communities of color, the LGBTQ community, Native communities, people living with disabilities, and children and young people.
The census really is the foundation of redistricting. If we want an accurate count and fair maps, we need to do our part by filling out the census -- and encouraging our friends and families to do the same. That's why, as a member of AOTL's 2020 Census working group, I'm reaching out to remind you.
I just received my census in the mail this morning -- it took less than five minutes to complete and I was able to fill it out online. Quick, easy and accessible. In fact, the census is available in 13 languages and also has a toolkit for folks living with disabilities. Filling out the census was an easy way to make a direct impact on redistricting and how my community will be represented for the next decade.

Subject: Three things you need to know about the census
With the redistricting process less than a year away, All On The Line is already in full swing -- especially because 2020 is a census year. Here's what you need to know about the role that the census plays in redistricting.
→ The census is the foundation for redistricting. Without an accurate count, it will be impossible to create fair maps that truly represent the communities who live there.
→ The census count will determine how many congressional districts each state will have for the next decade. With 435 representatives total, that means states could gain or lose a district based on population changes.
→ The Supreme Court stopped the Trump administration's attempt to add a citizenship question to the census, but we expect that map manipulators will try to find new ways to suppress the power of certain communities in an attempt to maintain their own power.
We have a long road ahead in the fight for fair maps. All On The Line is committed to fighting to ensure communities across the country are fairly represented. Help fund this important work!

Hey Sula, I’m looking at the spreadsheets and noticed we’re a bit off-track toward our end-of-quarter goal. I totally understand that people have a lot on their minds right now! But if we can hit this goal:
We’ll be able to invest in all nine of our target states
We’ll be able to get every single Democrat out to the polls in November
We’ll be able to (finally!) hold Republicans accountable
And we’ll ensure that the next decade’s worth of maps will be FAIR.
