We must rely on our own organizations and resources, like the Greater Washington Urban League, not only to avoid the deliberate undercount of our communities, but to also ensure we create a more powerful voice for ourselves. 

This is why we created the Greater Washington Urban League Census Institute. 

Nearly a quarter of District residents live in what are called "hard-to-count" neighborhoods - places in the most vulnerable sections of D.C. that require the Census to go to each household door-by-door and make sure every person completes their Census questionnaire. These include places like Congress Heights, Fort Stanton, and Barry Farm in Wards 5, 7, and 8.
