A team and 15 adults and 15 youth leaders learned about the U.S. Census and how important an accurate count is to all communities, particularly those who historically have not participated in the Census. The group then broke into teams and canvassed door-to-door to educate people and encourage them to fill out the 2020 Census. Southwest Organizing Project (SWOP) has been canvassing their neighborhood for months, and getting their youth leaders and Baum Network members involved was meaningful to everybody involved.
Thank you to all of the youth and volunteers, and to Chicago Cares, who organized the event.
