The Census is critical to multiple facets of civic life: political representation in Congress, voting district boundaries, federal funding for states and local communities, among many others. There are many challenges in ensuring an accurate count for the census: ranging from a lack of awareness regarding the Census to structural barriers that communities of color face.
As a college campus, Barnard College is critical in the count. For many college students, this may be the first time they are participating in the census and it is important to know where they should be counted and how to complete the census!
