This year, the U.S. Census Bureau is encouraging everyone, "Shape Your Future. START HERE." This slogan, or tagline, is designed to raise awareness of and encourage participation in the 2020 Census.
This message speaks to an individual's opportunity to shape their future—and the future of their community—by participating in the decennial census. After all, census results determine each state's number of seats in the U.S. House of Representatives, and they inform how billions of dollars in federal funding are distributed to communities each year for clinics, fire departments, new roads, and other critical programs and services.
Join us for a look back at the other slogans that have called on the entire country to stand up and be counted.
