#DisabilityCounts2020 – Why Does the Census Matter? (English)

Deaf and Disabled Folks Have a Lot to Sign and Say About the 2020 Census.

If you think people with disabilities count, SIGN THE PLEDGE to complete YOUR 2020 Census!

Not participating in the Census means less funding in our communities. That’s why Rooted in Rights partnered with DREDF to produce a series of videos to mobilize the disability community and make sure that our needs are counted.

Do you have questions about why the Census matters? Privacy concerns? Or questions about how the 2020 Census will be accessible for people with disabilities?

Watch to learn more in English, Spanish, or ASL, then sign our pledge to complete the 2020 Census yourself.

And if you’re interested in working with Disability Rights Washington to educate disabled people in your community about why the census matters, let us know at info@rootedinrights.org. We are hiring census ambassadors throughout Washington to work with us to make sure we all count!
