By order of Trump, the Census Bureau has rolled back door-knocking Census operations from October 31 to September 30. Door-to-door outreach is essential to reach communities of color, marginalized groups, and rural areas. Census undercounts negatively impact many important aspects of our society: government, education, health and economy. An undercount in South Dakota will hurt South Dakotans.
I ask you all to complete the Census- you can do this safely, from your home, via phone or online. The 2020 Census is important- let us do our part to ensure a better future for South Dakota.
