We are getting our community to represent California by participating in the Census! Making over a hundred thousand calls in 9 days alone, our partners have been talking with 15,116 voters of color – youth, first-generation immigrants, Vietnamese American and Latinx voters – living in hard-to-count areas throughout Orange County. Of the voters reached, 43% pledged to participate in the Census, while another 55% shared that they already completed the census.
Because the Coronavirus crisis prevented us from canvassing voters door-to-door, we are reaching out via mail to 26,229 voters who have no phone numbers on record and would therefore be harder to reach. Hundreds of voters are then able to get in touch with us through prepaid mail, phone hotline, text messages, or through an online form.
