SFCounts Census Community Kick-Off Event
1st Sundays Block Party

Fulton + Larkin Street, San Francisco
Join us this Sunday October 6, from 11am-3pm for SFCounts Census Community Kick-Off—a FREE family-friendly event—at the final 2019 1st Sundays Block Party. As a sneak peek of Art+Action's city-wide arts-based 2020 Census campaign, we'll be presenting free art-making activities in Chinese, English, Spanish, and Tagalog, by Sanctuary City Project—to educate and mobilize our communities to participate in the 2020 Census.
Ignited by support from San Francisco’s Office of Civic Engagement and Immigrant Affairs (OCEIA), and in partnership with Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (YBCA)—our Headquarters—Art+Action is building a coalition across art, creative, community, business, technology, philanthropy, activist, and government sectors. We're focused on galvanizing all San Franciscans to participate safely in the census, so that our communities get their fair share of resources and representation.
Sanctuary City Project’s mobile tricycle silkscreen cart will be the first in our series of art activations which will be held throughout the greater SF Bay Area. Who are the artists, musicians, dancers, and creatives in your communities? We’d love to commission them to work with us as a part of our city-wide arts takeover. Have them reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

ABOUT THE 2020 CENSUS
On April 1, 2020, a ten-minute, nine-question survey—the U.S. Census—will shape the trajectory of our country and our city, impacting every person's quality of life for the next ten years, for better or for worse. Money and power are at stake. For each San Franciscan—citizen or non-citizen, child or adult—who does or does not participate in the 2020 Census, $20,000 per person ($2k per person over 10 years), will go into our community, or not, for schools, parks, healthcare, emergency services, among other essentials.; and, for the first time in the state’s history, California is in real danger of losing a seat in the House of Representatives.
