2020 Census Complete Count Committee Header
Our Vision for Pierce County

We believe community members are experts in what they and their communities need. The Everybody Counts Campaign will center community members in our work and bring their voices to the fore. Together, we can ensure every resident of Pierce County is informed, engaged and valued in the census process. To do so we will make every effort to engage our friends, families, colleagues and neighbors in their chosen language, break down barriers to participation, such as not having access to a computer, and mitigate security concerns of our fellow residents who may not feel safe sharing their information with the government. 

Our work is not over after the 2020 Census is completed. We are creating resilient networks across Pierce County that will serve our community in 2020 and beyond.
