For over a year, FPL and the 2020 Census Faith Council have been engaging faith leaders across the country around the 2020 Census. Now, the census is less than six months away! It’s time for all faith communities and faith-based organizations to begin preparing their communities for the 2020 Census.

Let’s work together to ensure all people are counted!
