Black people deserve to be listened to, not spoken about or spoken for. That's why Black Futures Lab is launching the Black Census Project 2022, the largest national survey of Black people conducted in the United States in 157 years!
For far too long, Black communities have been left out of the conversation. We're taking the Black Census everywhere Black people get left behind - rural and urban and suburban, U.S.-born and immigrant, incarcerated and formerly incarcerated, LGBTQ, cisgender and gender non-conforming, disabled, young and seasoned, and more - we're looking for you!
The data gathered from the Black Census is anonymous and will be used to inform public policies and identify priority issues that represent Black communities. These priorities will help us make decisions about who we show up for at the polls and what we demand from them - which is why your voice has never been more important.
Help us reach 200,000 responses by October 31, 2022!
