Watchdog Coalition is Helping Keep Census Data Safe and Confidential

helping keep the census safe

Every 10 years, the federal government counts everyone in the United States. Everyone. That means children, immigrants, students, and everyone in between. It can be intimidating to answer personal questions about yourself, even though your responses to the 2020 Census are confidential.

But we've got your back. Together, we are more than 275 organizations and civic leaders from across the country standing at the ready to monitor and use every tool necessary to work to protect the integrity and safety of the 2020 census. ​

Do your part: Fill out the census. And while you do it, know that we've got your back.

We pledge to protect
