Our SWAG board was grateful to get a visit from Kristen Young this morning who shared with us how critically important it is that underrepresented areas participate in the census. SWAG is excited to partner in the 2020 Census so all of our neighbors are counted.
SWAG challenges everyone to get behind this effort because Floridians lose hundreds of millions of dollars annually over a decade when we undercount our residents. Those dollars pay for everything from Medicaid, student loans, and SNAP benefits… to Head Start, WIC, health care centers, childcare funds and food programs for children and adults. All of this and much, much more.
More on our efforts to count everyone in the coming weeks and months.
