Virtual “Community Town Hall” – a call for help with the Census

Your help is needed, please.

This Community Virtual Event was held on July 28th at 7:00pm via zoom, to collaborate together regarding the Census. As you can imagine, this task at hand has become more difficult but still needs to be accomplished — and the deadline is coming in October (Now the end of September). Certain areas in the Phoenix Metro are not coming together yet, and this is why the Arizona Interfait Movement has been asked to help.
