Faith & Community Leaders from Across the State Urge Ohioans to Take the 2020 Census 

Columbus, OH — On Wednesday, April 1 at 1:15 p.m., Ohio faith and community leaders will hold a video conference calling on all Ohio residents to complete the 2020 Census. National Census Day on April 1 will mark a day of celebration kicking off the 2020 Census. ​

Amid COVID-19, Ohio faith leaders remain committed to ensuring all Ohioans are counted so our communities receive the federal representation and resources they need. The census will determine critical funding for hospitals, roads, schools and other social programs. People can respond immediately to the 2020 Census online at 2020census.gov, by mail, or phone.

Ahead of Census Day, 29 Ohio-based faith groups have signed a statewide letter calling on Ohio residents to complete the 2020 Census. To see the letter and the full list of signers, click here.
