Census 2020 is coming, and Westchester County Executive George Latimer kicked off the County’s 2020 Census Campaign to ensure that every Westchester County resident is counted. Latimer was joined by local municipalities who have their own Census Complete Count Committees, Census advocates, community-based organizations, college students and more at Pace University, to stress the importance of a full and complete count for the 2020 Census. 

Included in the County’s efforts to promote the Census is a robust public awareness campaign in both English and in Spanish, which includes a series of public service announcements (PSA’s), each one focused on a different target audience for the Census. The fifth PSA focuses on how the Census impacts youth in Westchester County. 

Watch the fifth video, “The Census and our Youth.”

The fifth PSA features Executive Director of the Westchester County Youth Bureau Dr. DaMia Harris-Madden, and Frank Williams of the White Plains Youth Bureau. Westchester County wants to ensure that young people fully understand the importance of the Census, and understand that it is part of their civic duty to complete the Census with their families. The Census determines the allocation of resources and funding for a host of programs that are utilized by our youth, so all youth must be counted in the 2020 Census.
