The City of Fremont, in partnership with Alameda County, is working to ensure that we fully count the community in the upcoming United States Census. Every ten years, the Census Bureau counts everyone living in the country to collect basic information including age, sex, and race, for every adult, child, and baby. Census 2020 will not ask about citizenship status or for information such as a social security number. The Census gives us data about our community, informs the distribution of billions of dollars in federal funding, and determines the number of decision makers representing us. An undercount means fewer resources for everyone; for every person not counted, our community loses $10,000 over the next 10 years.
Beginning in March 2020, the City of Fremont will administer a Questionnaire Assistance Center, located at the Fremont Family Resource Center to provide the public with access to computers and support in completing the Census. Responses are confidential, and protected by law.
Those interested in getting involved can become a Census Ambassador and promote the Census in Fremont through your neighborhood, community organization, or house of worship. You will be equipped with training, materials, and messaging to support Census participation. If you are interested please send an email to the City’s Census Volunteer Coordinator, Ashleigh Howick.
