Councilwoman Monica Rodriguez - Angelenos Experiencing Homelessness

All Angelenos, regardless of housing status, deserve to be counted in the US 2020 Census. Today, I introduced legislation calling for more extensive outreach and a Census 2020 education plan targeting Angelenos experiencing homelessness. Los Angeles is home to the largest hard-to-count population in the nation, and an undercount can threaten the critical resources our community needs for public safety, housing, and city services. Currently, the federal Census Bureau plans to devote three days to counting individuals who are experiencing homelessness across the country. With such a brief timeframe and limited resources, the City of Los Angeles should expand Census outreach to make sure homeless Angelenos are counted. In the coming weeks, this legislation will be brought back to the council for review.
