As people of faith, we believe in the divinely given dignity of every person. When we answer the 2020 Census and encourage our neighbors to do so too, we declare that we are part of “we the people” and refuse to be excluded from the critical funding and political representation all people deserve.
A fair and accurate census is one of the most significant civil and economic justice issues facing our country today.
The Colorado Council of Churches and Together Colorado have partnered to create this Faith Hub for the 2020 Census. Faith leaders are trusted messengers that have a key role to play in ensuring everyone is counted. This website is designed to equip faith leaders (and community leaders) with resources, messaging, and action steps to help make sure every adult and child in our community is counted, regardless of race, faith tradition, immigration, or economic status.
We look forward to partnering with you on the 2020 Census and hope you'll join us to spread the word!
The Colorado Council of Churches is the expression of Christian denominations, Christian congregations and affiliated partners that have intentionally entered into a covenant relationship to live out its mission: Walking together in faith, working together for justice.
Together Colorado is a non-partisan, multi-racial, multi-faith community organization comprised of 220 congregations, schools, clergy and faith leaders across the state and a member of Faith in Action with 1,000 religious congregations in more than 200 cities and towns through its 45 local and state federations. We are organizing to place human dignity at the center of public life.
To help you answer the census, the U.S. Census Bureau provides translated web pages and guides in 59 non-English languages, including American Sign Language, as well as guides in braille and large print.
Do people have to answer all census questions?
While the law requires persons to answer all census questions accurately, an incomplete census form will still be included in the head count.
