The COVID-19 virus has forced us to cancel or postpone many of our activities, including our trip to the Farmer’s Market to outreach about the Census, and our 100th Anniversary Celebration of the founding of the League of Women Voters. It has upended our day to day lives and caused an uncertainty that challenges us all.
Much of the work that we do as a League involves interacting with people, which is made more challenging when we are confined to our homes. You can help from home. Please reach out to your family, friends and people that you work with and help them understand the importance of the Census. Call, text or email them and encourage them to complete their Census form today. We have included suggestions below about wording and links to information that can help answer questions about the Census or how to complete the form.
While we have plans scheduled for April, May, and June, we do not know how things will proceed, so we have to wait and see. In the meantime, we can catch up on some of those things that we never have time to do … like our taxes, sorting the closet, or reading a good book.
I hope that you all keep safe and find some enjoyment or meaning in our slower paced reality.
