Alameda Counts is the city of Alameda’s effort to make sure everyone within Alameda is counted in Census 2020. The Census is a national count of all peoples residing within the United States (regardless of citizenship or immigration status) every 10 years. This information is vital for political representation, for receiving federal funding, and provides the government with information about changing demographics within the country.

This year, for the first time ever, the Census can be filled out online. Alameda Counts’ website is the place for Alameda citizens to commit to be counted.

The Census board wanted a logo that invoked community and inclusion, while still seeming official and reputable, also highlighting the three key actionable events: pledge, capture, and attend.
