Census outreach table at National Night Out

On August 6th, City of Salinas Community Development staff participated in various National Night Out events throughout the city of Salinas. National Night Out is an event that improves the relationship between law enforcement and community members to create a safer neighborhood. Staff had the opportunity to share information to nearly 85 residents about the upcoming Census count for the year 2020 and the impacts this has for the community. An accurate Census count is crucial to ensuring that Salinas gets the federal funding and representation its residents deserve. City staff will continue to provide education and Census resources at community events throughout the fall.
