#2020Census x UPRISERS

Aug 21, 2020Lyndsey Chu

For the past month, UPRISERS collaborated with the 2020 Census Bureau as an official partner to rally our community around the #2020Census. The more we learn about the impact of the Census, the more passionate we are for every single person to be counted! ⁠⠀

The 2020 Census will decide where $1.5 TRILLION a YEAR of federal funding is invested in our communities for the next ten years, and informs how congressional and school districts are determined. However, if our families, neighbors and friends don’t complete the Census, we will be under-represented, underfunded, and underserved. We are activating our community of warriors for change to spread awareness so that all of us are counted and marginalized communities will be given the resources needed to make strides in this country. ⁠


UPRISERS Live at Home 

We are excited to announce our UPRISERS Live At Home, where we raise awareness for the #2020Census featuring performances by our incredible lineup Klassy, Nohemy, Ruby Ibarra, Latashá, Prometheus Brown, and Louie Zong with our very own hosts, Michelle K. Hanabusa and Hollis Wong-Wear.



Hollis Does Brunch

UPRISERS partnered with Hollis Does Brunch to host meaningful conversations with community leaders and US Census Bureau representatives about the misconceptions and realities of taking the Census and how important it is for everyone to be counted. Here are some recaps from the Hollis Does Brunch series.
