Commitment Pledge

Thank you for your consideration in taking our commitment pledge to actively engage in the 2020 U.S. Census. The census is a count of every person who lives in the United States and its territories. It happens every 10 years. In early 2020, you will be asked to count everyone who lives in your home as of April 1. Responding to the 2020 Census is a chance to shape your future.

As a Black Dad it is critically important that you participate in the Census. To do so will help your family and community have access to billions of dollars to be distributed in communities with the most need.

It's important to understand that while we have responsibility for our own civic actions and engagement, that there are structural realities created and designed to limit our voices. It's critical that we not let those things serve as or motivate excuses for us not showing up. 

As A Black Dad…


  • I will respond to the receipt of any notification I (family) receives related to the U.S. Census.

  • I will play a positive role in assisting other Black Dads to be aware of the importance of the 2020 U.S. Census

  • I commit to responding to periodic poll questions and surveys regarding my participation in the 2020 U.S. Census

  • I will commit to being actively responsible for all measures of civic engagement that benefit the health and well being of my community.
