The PowerNet Group
welcomes you to our 2020 CENSUS & VOTING RIGHTS Outreach Campaign!!!
The primary purpose of this campaign, which received financial assistance from the Allegany Franciscan Ministries Foundation, is to provide information about, and encourage participation in, the 2020 Census and the 2020 election process with particular emphasis on individuals, families and neighborhoods that have been affected, directly or indirectly, by the criminal justice system.
Every 10 years the US Constitution requires a full and accurate count of our U.S. population in order to fairly distribute more than $675 billion in federal funds annually. These funds are used to support housing, education, transportation, employment, health care, and other social programs. Some of these funds are intended to help individuals and families that face discrimination and/or disenfranchisement due to a criminal record…including persons in low-income households, communities of color, the immigrant population and pre-school children.
It will be very helpful to this campaign if you would please answer our online survey that can be started by clicking anywhere on the flyer above. This survey will provide important information about your experience with the criminal justice system that will be used to advocate for CHANGE in the system. Your answers will be anonymous. We have no way of knowing what individual answers each survey. All of the answers from all of the surveys will be combined to get an overall picture of how the community feels about the 2020 Census, voting rights and the criminal justice system. Immediately after completing the anonymous survey, feel free to register to win one of over 150 gift cards that will be given away. The winners will be notified by email or text no later than January 25, 2020.
Thank you for taking the time to help us gather important information that will eventually help those most in need in our community. We look forward to your input and/or active participation in the very near future as we work together to “Instill HOPE and Inspire CHANGE” in our community.
