Cardi B Urges New Yorkers To Fill Out Census 2020
Cardi B is one of the best celebrities at the moment. She is not just a great singer, in fact, she is using her platform to spread COVID-19 awareness. Her Coronavirus rant was remixed into a track, and it is breaking the charts. While she keeps sharing interesting information on regular basis from her home, recently, she shared a very important message for the New Yorkers. Cardi B shared a public service announcement on her Instagram account. The message is about Census 2020 of New York City.
Cardi B’s Important Message For Census 2020
As per the post caption, Cardi B is proud to work with NYC Census 2020. She wants a fair share of her city and she needs all her fellow New Yorkers to participate in the Census. Cardi B also tagged Census Director Julie Menin in her post.

NYC! Proud to work with NYC Census & @julmenin to get the word out and make sure we get our city’s fair share. Don't let this virus distract you from the fact that this census is IMPORTANT, now more than ever, to getting the resources we NEED in our communities. Fill out the census at – 2020census.gov or call 844-330-2020 to fill out the census. IT ONLY TAKES 10 MINUTES Thank You ❤️
The caption states:
Don’t let this virus distract you from the fact that this census is IMPORTANT.
The post has two versions of Cardi B’s message. One is in English, while the second one is in Spanish. Focusing on NYC’s future, Cardi B urges her fans to take a part in deciding their city’s future not for the next four years, but for the next ten years.
The census is about money, power, and respect.
She highlights the importance of Census by pointing out the fact that if Census is misrepresented, then it would result in under-counting. And it will not be good for the people, especially for people of color.
In 2010, only 62% of New Yorkers responded to the Census, with the lowest response rates of our black and brown communities.
She is not going to let the history repeat itself. In 2020, she wants the NYC communities to stand up to the status quo. She also shared that citizenship question is off the census.
How to take a part?
All you need to do is fill out the census at 2020census.gov or call 844-330-2020 to fill out the census. Cardi B confirms that it will hardly take 10 minutes. Since you are following the Quarantine rule (hopefully), you can do this.
