On August 23, I spoke at the OC Complete Count Committee about the importance of an accurate count for the 2020 Census.
As the third most populated county in the state and the sixth in the country, Orange County needs to focus on ensuring every individual is accounted for. With such a diverse population, we need to make sure people understand the importance of the decennial census and feel comfortable participating in it.
Thank you to the City of Santa Ana for hosting this event! It was a great space to discuss implementation of the census with local community group representatives, non-profits, and elected officials.
As part of the City of Santa Ana’s census outreach campaign, two of my staff members participated in a video to inform the community about the importance of participating in the census. Santa Ana is the hardest city to count in Orange County, making any outreach work crucial to getting an accurate count and securing the most funding for our residents.
