GWUL CENSUS CENTER
The Census Center has created a robust community-driven
community-driven effort to fight the Census undercount through enhanced awareness, mobilization and unified block-by-block organizing.
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.
The mission of the Greater Washington Urban League is to ensure that everyone in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area is on the road to self-sufficiency through a variety of innovative programs. In doing so, it’s essential to increase the economic empowerment of Blacks and other traditionally underserved populations to share equally in the responsibilities and rewards of full citizenship. Your donation will help us support that mission.
The College Sustainability Fund works to ease financial burdens on low-income, underrepresented college students from the District of Columbia, Prince George's County, Maryland and Montgomery County, Maryland.
Our goal: to decrease many of the financial burdens associated with higher learning and to increase the college graduation rate and future success of underrepresented populations in our region.
