Medford, Oregon (June 22, 2020)— Jackson County Library Services (JCLS) is committed to ensuring that every person is counted in the 2020 Census. In support of the #WeCountOregon campaign, JCLS Census Assistance Centers will provide residents with assistance completing the census at each of their 15 branches through September 22, 2020. Jackson County residents can find the schedule here. Library staff will be available with a laptop for residents to complete their online census questionnaires.
The purpose of the #WeCountOregon campaign is to help those in hard-to-count communities to participate in the census, as is each Oregonian’s right and responsibility. Oregon’s hard-to-count communities are non-English speakers, immigrants, members of the LGBTQIA 2Spirit community, rural ranchers and farmers, children under age five, and people of color, including Black, Asian, Latinx, Middle Eastern, and Native American residents.
“The census is our opportunity to tell the government who we are,” said Adult Services Coordinator Carrie Turney Ross. “A full count will ensure that Jackson County residents have the funding we need for education, housing, infrastructure, and so much more for the next decade.”
Jackson County residents who have not completed their 2020 Census are encouraged to complete it online at my2020census.gov/ or to visit the JCLS Census Assistance Center closest to them to get counted.
