Congresswoman Maxine Waters (CA-43), Chair of the House Financial Services Committee, issued an urgent message to the community about the 2020 U.S. Census on April 1st, which is recognized across the country as Census Day.

“Whether you are a student, parent, veteran, senior, or working professional, this message is for you! Your household will receive an invitation to fill out a short questionnaire from the U.S. Census Bureau in the mail. It is imperative that you complete this form and respond to the Census Bureau online, by phone, or by mail.

“The 2020 Census will be used to determine the number of Congressional districts that are drawn in our state, and the amount of federal dollars that are allocated to California to pay for programs like Medicaid, school lunches, senior services, health clinics, public housing, veteran programs, emergency management, and highway construction.


“It is extremely important that you and your family are accurately counted. By federal law, your Census answers are strictly confidential, and cannot be used be used against you in any way, by anyone! It only takes a few minutes to complete the survey, but the impact of an undercount of our community will be felt for years.

“Our community is counting on you to do your part and ensure that everyone is counted in the 2020 Census. For more information, please visit or call my Los Angeles office at 323-757-8900.”
