VOICE SOCIAL MEDIA TOOLKIT

The Census will directly impact our communities every day for the next ten years – it determines the allocation of nearly 7 Billion dollars a year for federal programs that serve children, communities, and families, and it determines our congressional districts and number of representatives, directly impacting our power and access to fair representation. We created VOICE – Voicing Our Information for Census Equity – the Urban League of Louisiana’s umbrella initiative to encourage a successful 2020 Census response rate, especially for the African-American community and other communities of color with special attention to families with young children and opportunity youth.
