Every Texan Counts: Ensure Full Representation in the 2020 Census

Sign your name to say you support an accurate and complete census count.

In an effort to stick it to immigrants, Republicans tried to add a question about citizenship status to the 2020 census. They failed, but their fear mongering tactics were largely felt by immigrant communities.

Here at Progress Texas, we believe in an accurate and complete census count. The census is supposed to count everyone living in the country in order to allocate seats in Congress and determine federal dollars dispersed to each state.

Trump’s loss at the Supreme Court is a win for the 2020 census, but his pursuit of citizenship data may still have negative consequences for Texas.

Now more than ever, it's important that everyone complete the census in order to ensure representation for all Texans. 

Sign our petition to say you believe all Texans should be counted in the 2020 census.

Background

The U.S. conducts a demographic count, or census, of our country every 10 years to record things such as population, diversity make-up, age, and more.

Republicans tried to stifle minority voices and incite fear in immigrants by adding the citizenship question. But that is not what the census is about. The census is meant to count every resident.

In a 2016 Supreme Court ruling, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg said, "Representatives serve all residents, not just those eligible to vote." Counting every person is not only a constitutional mandate, but is essential to ensuring that Texas can thrive for years to come.

Sign our petition to say all Texans deserve a voice and should be represented in the census.
