“Rally to Complete Count” Press Conference Planned  for July 22 at MLK Park  Influencers And Leaders From Communities Of Color To Advocate For Census Participation 

The Rochester-Monroe Complete Count Committee will  host a socially distant press conference on Wednesday, July  22 at MLK park. A video will be produced documenting the  gathering, with the goal of increasing community  participation in the 2020 Census.  

The press conference theme, “Rally to Complete Count,”  will reflect the current movement for racial equity in our  community and will address why completing the  questionnaire is a direct action to strengthen Black and  Brown communities in Rochester.  

Local influencers and  leaders in the Black, LatinX, and New Americans community will take  the podium to talk about the consequences of their respective communities not  completing the questionnaire. Speakers will also encourage the community to use social  media to spread awareness about Rochester’s road to a complete count for the 2020  Census.
