Tarrant County Black Census
#TCBlackCensus Project is a social media outreach campaign targeting Tarrant County's nearly 15% (14.9) of the total population. The #TCBlackCensus project pledges to empower the entire 15% of Blacks in Tarrant County to complete the census, which takes less than 15 minutes to complete.
Utilizing multiple social media platforms and electronic messaging, we will educate, motivate, and drive the Black population of Tarrant County to complete the 2020 Census. The black community is classified as a hard-to-count population, and the #TCBlackCensus project and our partners are working to change this.
Why Does The Census Matter?
Responding to the census affects the amount of funding your community receives, how your community plans for the future, and your representation in government. Specifically, data from the 2020 Census are used to:
Ensure public services and funding for schools, hospitals, and fire departments.
Plan new homes and businesses and improve neighborhoods.
It’s about fair representation. Every 10 years the results of the census are used to examine population shifts in order to reapportion congressional and state legislative seats in each state and to allocate federal resources back into our Fort Worth community.
Because everyone counts. The census counts every person living in the U.S. once, only once, and in the right place. Census data is used to ensure quality-of-life, plan for new schools, public safety, and neighborhood improvements. Don’t forget to count your roommates and all children under 5 years old!
Census data determines how more than $675 billion are spent, supporting your state, county and community’s vital programs.
