New Mexico is considered one of the hardest to count states and African-Americans here are working hard to increase the count in the 2020 Census.
I attended the Statewide Census 2020 gathering and was able to establish connections to help with completing the 2020 Census including all the minority populations in NM. Thank you so very much for creating a safe space where I felt comfortable asking about the lack of representation for the African-American community. The outpouring of support has been heartwarming. I was able to get certified and formed New Mexico’s only African- American Complete Count Committee (AACCC).
We meet monthly to design outreach strategies that will ensure WE count in 2020.
