NYSUT Counts 2020

NYSUT Counts is our union's initiative to ensure that every resident of the state is reported in the 2020 Census. The results affect the allocation of $700 billion in federal funding to schools, hospitals, municipalities and needy families.

For equity, fairness and justice, everyone must be counted!

Our count matters.
Here's what's at stake:

1.

New York State could lose federal dollars.

Census data determines how the federal government distributes more than $700 billion for schools, hospitals and roads.

2.

New York State could lose congressional seats.

Giving us less say in federal policy making.

3.

New York State could lose Electoral College delegates.

Diminishing our voice in presidential elections.

4.

The census is safe for ALL state residents.

Sharing census data with other federal agencies is illegal.
