2020 Census & General Election Campaign
The Chamber is calling on the business community and your network of family and friends to cast your vote and complete your 2020 Census. As a race, we have the most to lose if we don’t actively participate in these campaigns. Let’s demonstrate that “Black Lives Matter” through our actions. We all have work to do to empower the Black community.
Important Time Sensitive Information!!
If we are not counted in the 2020 Census, we stand to lose already dwindling resources for the next 10 years. Such as:
Did you know you can complete the 2020 Census by telephone? Simply call the US Census Bureau at 844-330-2020. Their Help Line is open from 7am to 2am Eastern Time until September 30, 2020.
Please be advised that the U.S. Census Bureau has revised its timetable by moving the deadline up to September 30th.
While the Bureau assures us that it is making every effort to count every Marylander, the change in date has given us a renewed sense of urgency. We have revised the materials and toolkits provided on our website to reflect the new deadline. These updates can be found at census.maryland.gov/Pages/Outreach-Tool-Kits. The link to the business toolkit is here. We encourage you to use these resources in reaching out to those you serve about the critical importance of the Census.
