Securing Our Children’s Future

A complete census count is essential for providing necessary resources for children—especially Latino children— says MomsRising.org, a grassroots activism and education blog for women.

In 2010, nearly half a million Latino children under the age of four were not counted. If these children are not counted in the 2020 Census, it could have serious effects on their schools and educational resources, fair representation in Congress, and the enforcement of civil rights policies that affect underrepresented communities.
