Census Count – Hard to Reach Communities
Ensuring everyone participates in the 2020 Census is no easy feat, so several Cleveland organizations got creative to make sure all communities are properly represented in the count. For example, the Young Latino Network launched the Cleveland Caravan. A pickup truck wove through the streets of a predominantly Latino neighborhood playing a looped message in English and Spanish about how to respond to the Census and to vote. Organizers walked alongside the caravan to distribute information. Other groups in Cleveland have been similarly creative to make sure Cleveland has an accurate count. Check out this story for more on these tactics which can work in many communities.
