No one knows your community better than you. So, whether you want to design a sticker, draw a poster, write a poem, sing a song, or choreograph a dance, Lincoln Center teaching artists will be on hand to help you shape your ideas. Come collaborate on fun and accessible art projects to help reach the people in your life and share the importance of the census. Lincoln Center, in partnership with Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer and the U.S. Census Bureau, wants to ensure that our communities get their fair share, especially people in historically under-counted groups. These include people of color, immigrants, LGBTQIA people, people experiencing homelessness, people with low incomes, renters, single-parent households, people with limited English proficiency, and children under the age of five.


Take the Census with Confidence 


The Census opens on March 12, 2020 and this will be the first time people can fill out their Census form online. Forms can also be completed by mail, phone, or at any branch of the New York Public Library, where in-person help will be available. Libraries will also offer Census materials and resources in multiple languages. Visit or your local library’s web page for additional information and events.


Remember, your responses to the 2020 Census are safe, secure, and protected by federal law. Information shared through the Census can only be used to produce statistics—it cannot be used against you in any way. By law, all responses to U.S. Census Bureau household and business surveys are kept completely confidential. So take the Census with confidence that your answers will help your community get its fair share.
