Our Community. Our Census.

We Count Long Beach


It is NOT too late to respond to the 2020 Census! Call 1-800-923-8282 or go to wecountla.org to answer simple questions about your household like your age, the number of children in your home, and your marital status.  All of your information is protected by law and cannot be used against you by any government agency like ICE, CPS, FBI, or CIA. Your sexual orientation, age, or citizenship status does not matter, everybody counts!

Your community has a lot to gain. Each person counted in the census means more money will go to your community for the next 10 years for things like schools, roads, hospitals, and children’s healthcare. Participating in the census means you are claiming your community’s fair share of federal money. With 10 million people living in LA County, we have a lot to gain.

Los Angeles County is the hardest-to-count county in the United States, and it will take a broad, collective effort to ensure a fair and accurate count in the 2020 Census. An undercount could result in the loss of congressional seats, billions of dollars in federal funding for our state and local communities, and unfair political representation since census counts are used to draw political districts at the federal, state, and local levels.
