Census 2020: Color to Count is a coloring book featuring artwork by African-American artists to raise awareness of the 2020 Census and increase participation of African-American households with children under the age of five.

In the 2010 Census, African-American children under the age of five were one of the highest under counted populations. When young children are not counted, support for programs, such as health insurance, hospitals, child care, food assistance, schools, and early childhood development go underfunded. 

The Census: 2020 Color to Count coloring book was spearheaded by September Hargrove and done in partnership with Everyone Counts Census Coalition and the Bagley Community Council. For more information please contact colortocount@gmail.com

About The 2020 Census

Every 10 years, the Census counts every person living in the United States. Responses to the Census shape how more than $675 billion dollars in public funding is distributed to our communities for health care, education, roads, and more.  


The Census form is 10 questions and takes 10 minutes to complete. The Census asks you to count everyone who lives in your home as of April 1, 2020. Responding to the 2020 Census is a chance to shape your future.
