CENSUS 2020 – APPEAL TO AMERICANS OF POLISH DESCENT

CENSUS 2020 - APPEAL TO AMERICANS OF POLISH DESCENT

We appeal to Poles in the United States and Americans of Polish descent, i.e., the Polish-American community, to participate in the upcoming United States Census 2020. Every ten years, a census takes place in the United States, and all residents, regardless of their legal status, are obliged to take part in it. The collected data is not shared with other government institutions. The upcoming census will be carried out from March 1 to April 1, by mail, by telephone or online. It is important to enter “Polish” or “Polish-American” in questions concerning ethnicity. Why is this important?

The size of each ethnic group determines its position and power of influence as concerns our social and political reality. Very important presidential elections are approaching, both in the United States and Poland. A larger size of our Polish community will increase the chances that our needs, expectations and demands will be met by the candidates and the winners of the upcoming presidential elections, as well as other politicians, in both countries. We are also asking for a wide distribution of our appeal.

We appeal to Poles in the United States and Americans of Polish descent, i.e., the Polish-American community, to participate in the upcoming United States Census 2020.

(This appeal was origianlly published by the Polonia Institute – http://www.poloniainstitute.net/)
