|Tell the US Census that we all count!
||[Jan. 9th, 2012|05:16 pm]
During the 2010 Census, LGBT people and straight allies sent in over 140,000 big pink stickers telling the Census Bureau that “We All Count.” The QTC campaign is still going strong, so join me in telling the federal government that it is past time to count everyone in our community! And if you sign the petition, the Task Force will send you a free 'Count Me In' sticker.
We are advocating for the Census in future years — and for the hundreds of smaller, yearly surveys the federal government conducts — to include question(s) identifying LGBT people. When we go to bat for things like funding LGBT health services or hate crime prevention, we can use the data to say, "Look, there are people who need this in your district."
The good news is that you and I can do something about it. It's time to Queer the Census! Join me and sign the pledge from the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force urging the Census Bureau to make sure everyone is counted.

Thanks for your help,
