Census 2020: 10 Questions ~ 10 Minutes ~ 10 Years of Impact!


As Christians, we believe that all people are made in the image of God. Participating in the 2020 Census helps all of us have equal access to representation and resources. The census determines how many books and computers our schools can afford, whether our elders have access to heath care, and where bus routes are located.

You can choose any one of the three following ways to complete your census questionnaire before a census-taker comes to your door:

  1. Online at 2020census.gov A letter from the Census provides a personalized ID code to participate, but you can also just enter your address instead.
  2. By phone: Call 844-330-2020 for English or 844-460-2020 for Japanese. Phone completion is also available in 12 other languages or TDD. Phone numbers are here: https://2020census.gov/en/ways-to-respond/responding-by-phone.html
  3. By mail. Some people will get a census form in the mail to complete by hand. If you haven’t responded online or by phone, you will also receive a form in the mail.

You should not be asked to fill out a census form by email, and you will never be asked by the Census Bureau to provide your social security number, bank account numbers, or other private security information. There is no citizenship question on the census. The results cannot go to law enforcement, ICE, or your landlord. It is safe and secure.
