Wichita NAACP Complete Count committee now seeking volunteers

At our General Membership meeting, we were joined by Mr. Eloy Gallegos from the Census Department who came and brought information on how we could partner with the Census Bureau to ensure a complete count in the 2010 Census. The Wichita Branch will launch a community awareness campaign about the census, detailing why it's important, what the data is used for, and explaining the census forms.

The Census bureau is also looking for workers who would be willing to serve as enumerators. These are the people who will go out and knock on the doors of houses that do not return their census questionnaires. If you would be interested in participating in this effort; either by assisting with the community awareness campaign, or by serving as an enumerator, please click HERE to visit the Wichita NAACP Complete Count Committee Wiki page and sign up by leaving your name and contact information.

In the 2000 census, 74% of Kansas household responded to the census questionnaire. But in the predominantly African American and Hispanic North and Northeast parts of Wichita, the response rate was only 50%. Please join us and help ensure a Complete Count...
