Oregon Governor Kate Brown is encouraging full participation in the 2020 Census.
On Tuesday, Browns Census Team in the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion announced the Oregon 2020 Census Website which is www.oregon2020census.gov. A release from Brown’s office said the platform was designed to help create awareness about this year’s census, and to encourage participation.
Brown said the census is “integral to making sure that Oregonians receive their fair share of federal resources and congressional representation over the next decade”. She said that “from more dollars for schools and hospitals to ensuring our roads are safe and well kept, the census has a significant impact in the everyday life of Oregonians”.
The release said the website contains tools and resources to help individuals better know how the census impacts them and how organizations can encourage participation in their communities.
