We are less than a month away from the official Census Day and it’s time to take action! The Cougs for Census team is asking the Pullman community to take the pledge to ensure that all #CougsCount in the 2020 Census. But what does it mean to take the pledge?
The Census is an opportunity for us all to make our voices heard and shape the future of our community. While many of us students are not full time residents, it's important to acknowledge that even though you are only here for four years we need to make sure Pullman has the resources to support students and residents for the next 10 years.
It can be hard to imagine how your count makes an impact, but each person has the opportunity to help the Pullman community receive the funding it needs. This funding goes to resources that we all use whether we are full time residents or not. Some examples are the public transit system, emergency services, healthcare services and public education.
We need to leave this community better than we found it...that being said our team wants every Coug to take the pledge to fill out the 2020 Census. The Census counts everyone, but it's up to all of us to make sure all #CougsCount!
Everyone who takes the pledge will be entered in a raffle for a $20 Starbucks gift card, so please use an email you check frequently!
