Now the real work begins- a grassroots effort is needed from all who can participate!-I cannot do it alone. 

We are at a 45.8% percentile ranking and need to get our count up and out of the Hard to count category. 
Remember we will not receive any more Census dollars until 2031- this is literally the difference between the major reason why Highland Park did not receive COVID-19 funding this year- it was due to our low Census count. 
Hundreds of Parkers had COVID-19 and we lost 22 to death so far. We simply will not get our roads, medical support, educational support, public infrastructure support without a higher count. 
If you are a community leader, please step up and do your part to save this community-  the Census literally helps to save lives.

Starting this week we need your help:
  • We have Census CRR's who will be at several of our multi unit buildings to increase Census participation. Anyone who wants to help recruit residents to fill out the Census at these locations, or at any community events to distribute literature please advise
  • We need banners hung in various areas throughout the city on fences
  • We need HP Census literature deployed to all of the businesses throughout the city to support our community partners
  • We need all of your social media platforms to post about the Census for the next 3 weeks and Share information with your networks
  • We need phone bankers to help make calls with our phone banking partners
  • We also need community leaders to pass out Census material to their neighbors on their blocks
Any resources, people's support would be much appreciated. Email to share how you want to activate and if you plan to help Highland Park be successful.

Remember - Parkers Matter
