SAN ANTONIO – The clock is still ticking. There is now over just a month to fill out the 2020 Census.
The deadline was extended to October 31st on Friday. Still, community leaders aren’t wasting any time, as there are several events happening through Sunday that are geared toward getting people excited about filling out the short form.
“Fuerza Uniada,” which translates to “United Force,” is an organization hoping to ease any concerns people in the community may have about filling out the census, which isn’t reported to customs and immigration.
”We want to make sure that this community understands that the census is a safe process… We wanted to give people a whole day and opportunity to come and work directly with census specialists to fill out this census,” said Jessica O. Guerrero, with Fuerza Unida.
Guerrero spent most of Friday helping to host a mask and food giveaway
