In Case You Missed It: Remember to comment against citizenship question on Census

We asked you last week to provide a comment in opposition to the proposed citizenship question on the Census. In case you missed it, here's what you need to do:

The administration wants to ask about citizenship on the 2020 Census. They know that this will result in undercounts of non-citizens residing in the US. They want to suppress these numbers. They know this will result in less representation in government and less funding for areas where non-citizens reside. Washington is one of these places - there are almost 600,000 people living in Washington who are not citizens, according to a 2017 Kaiser Family Foundation estimate. Let the Commerce Department know this is unacceptable.

Submit a comment in opposition to the citizenship question on the Census at https://www.regulations.gov/document?D=USBC-2018-0005-0001 before August 7.

You can write your own comments, or use this form to start your comments and adjust as desired:
