A variety of organizations have partnered with the state to reach hard-to-count people and households

“We provide a visual so they can see the nine questions they’ll be asked,” says Pablo Rodriguez, Executive Director of CNC EF. “And they say, ‘Oh, that’s what the Census is?’”

Rodriguez’s door-to-door canvassers also explain that an accurate count brings at least $1,000 per person into a neighborhood — or more than $10,000 over the next 10 years. “In too many cities, one side of town is finished — and residents have everything they need to strive for success. On the other side of town, there are no curbs, sidewalks, parks aren’t maintained. This is a way to finish a neighborhood. Even if you can’t vote, this gives you a way to say what’s important.”

It is time to invest in the Central Valley and in the Coachella Valley beyond the usual election cycle or tit-for-tat politics. It is beyond time that the pathway towards California’s future centers on the priorities of Latina women and women as a whole because we are the spark leading the ways towards a better future—LÚCETE!
