Fair Representation Counts!
Did you know that the number of Congressional seats for our state is determined by the Census? Texas stands to gain up to three Congressional seats if we have a complete count. And, more representation in Washington means a greater likelihood that some of our much-needed infrastructure projects will get funded. Help us spread the word that in North Texas, everyone counts.
We Need Your Help!With no designated state funding, a group of community leaders around the state, including the North Texas Commission, are taking a leadership role in ensuring a complete count. But, that can't be done without your help. As a leader in our community, we need you to spread the word and tell your employees, customers, and colleagues to Get out the Count. Here's how:
- Be an advocate. Check out our toolkit for downloadable videos, letters, and infographics in English and Spanish. These tools are free for you to share with your networks.
- Invite us to speak. We welcome the opportunity to speak with your company or civic groups about the Census. Click here to complete our speaker request form.
- Host a Census event. Want to host an event at your workplace? Click here to find out how.
