Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC) will host a Census 2020 event for District residents tonight, November 6th, at 6:00 p.m., to encourage D.C. residents to participate in the Census process to help the District get the federal funding residents need, which is contingent on the number of residents in each jurisdiction.  Norton says residents may not know that documented and undocumented people alike are counted in the Census and that the Census protects the privacy of all residents and their families.  Norton will be joined by Census experts, including U.S. Census 2020, D.C. Census 2020, the Office for East of the River Services, and the office of Ward 7 Councilmember Vincent Gray.  Norton is holding Census meetings in the four Wards where there was an undercount in the last Census, Wards 1, 5, 7, and 8.
