Welcome to a brand new episode where we discuss the importance of the census, using art to elevate marginalized voices, and community organization with Portland advocate, educator, and writer Rebeca Alamo Gonzalez! Check it out!


With the Pandemic, the BLM protest and now the Wild Fires, there is a 6% of Oregon at risk of  not being counted in the 2020 census. This are likely the most marginalized communities that can not afford to be further underfunded (houseless, BIPOC, LGBTQA+, with disabilities, immigrants, children under 5,etc.)

To take the census over the phone on 13 languages:
