Do the Census!

The 2020 Census will determine congressional representation, inform hundreds of billions in federal funding every year, and provide data that will impact communities for the next decade. It is also used to draw congressional and state legislative districts. When we do the census, we make public benefits better for our local Coatesville community.

Don’t worry, the census will never ask for your citizenship status, your social security number, or any form of payment.  And you can very easily fill out a census form in one of three ways:

  1. Fill out the form online at 2020census.gov
  2. If you were mailed a paper form, mail it in
  3. Fill out the census by phone at 844-330-2020

Please note that if you use a P.O. Box to receive your residential mail, you will NOT receive any mailing from the Census Bureau.  However, if you have not yet been contacted by the Census Bureau, you can still fill out a form online with your name and address.

In These Times … A Message from the President

I can’t breathe.  I can’t breathe.  Mom. Mom.  I can’t breathe.

As a mother myself, these words bring instant panic, fear and reaction.  If I saw my son, my brother, my nephew, my cousin voicing these words on news feed over and over again, those instant reactions would ultimately move into raging anger.

That’s what we see in our streets repeated all over this country.  Chester County OIC wishes to bring honor to the name of George Floyd and so many like him, who have lost their lives in the struggle of being Black or of color in America.
