The 2020 Census is coming. Its results will shape how congressional seats are apportioned, and how federal funding is distributed among states and local jurisdictions. CASA de Maryland Outreach worker Swany Villatoro talks about countering misconceptions and asking people to pledge to complete the Census. And Gaby Roque, CASA’s lead organizer for Central Maryland, says the Census is a chance to have a say in the trajectory of the next decade.
