COUNTING ON OUR COMMUNITY!!! EVERYONE COUNTS!!

Gathering Point Community Council President Richard Wooten and Greater Chatham Alliance (GCA) representative Ora Jackson combined together to have an Outreach Event. The two organizations represent the 60619 and 60620 zip codes. These areas are considered HTC (Hard To Count). In 2010 the return rate for households in these zip codes was 60%.

The event was attended by organizations (Communities organized to Win ( COW) and Block Count Club. There were also community members and Pastors. Materials were reviewed and explained. People did sign up to help get the word out about the importance of the 2020 Census. There were laptops available to view the Census website and answer questions.
