What Does the For the People Act Do?
Fixing our Democracy is connected to every other issue we care about.
If Congress passed comprehensive democracy reforms, we will see
progress on the issues American families care about most, from the
environment and affordable healthcare, to fair labor laws and good-paying
jobs, to racial justice and gun violence prevention.
We must have a healthy democracy that responds to the needs and
priorities of voters – not wealthy donors and corporate interests, which
have dominated our system for too long.
The For the People Act will
Protect and Strengthen the Sacred Right to Vote
Get Big Money out of Politics
Clean up Our Government with Anti-Corruption & Pro-Ethics Measures
The TRUTH MATTERS. It is important for people to know the facts
and share them with others so all of us can be informed voters. We will
use this space to continue to provide you with the facts.
What to expect during the 2020 Census — and why it’s important
The decennial U.S. Census will begin next month, with forms mailed to every household.
What should you do? Why does it matter?
Census results determine how the federal government distributes billions of dollars among states, counties and local governments. The census affects legislative redistricting at all levels of government and determines how many seats in Congress and the number of electors each state gets.
KEY CENSUS DATES
· March 12 – 20: Households will begin receiving official Census Bureau mail with detailed information on how to respond to the 2020 Census online, by phone, or by mail.
· April 1: Census Day is observed nationwide. By this date, every home will receive an invitation to participate in the 2020 Census. Once the invitation arrives, you should respond for your home in one of three ways: online, by phone, or by mail. When you respond to the census, you’ll tell the Census Bureau where you live as of April 1, 2020.
· May-July: Census takers will begin visiting homes that haven’t responded to the 2020 Census to help make sure everyone is counted.
· December: The Census Bureau will deliver apportionment counts to the President and Congress as required by law.
