APIs are the fastest growing demographic in the United States and have been historically undercounted. A Constitutional right, the Census is a key exercise of democracy as it shapes our districts, funds programs, and provides a platform for us to be represented. With so much at stake in 2020, APANO is 1 of the 13 organizations leading the #WeCountOregon campaign for the 2020 Census.

The #WeCountOregon campaign is a statewide effort to ensure that every Oregonian, including people of color, children under 5, renters, immigrants, people with limited English proficiency, and multiple family homes are counted. APANO is focused on engaging and activating our Asian and Pacific Islander communities and coalition partners through education and outreach by hosting Census 101 training through July 2020. APANO will be hiring a 12 person field team in February 2020 to contact 10,000 Oregonians by knocking on doors, phone banking and text banking. Our communities need to be informed on what is at stake.
