    VENTURA, Calif. – The Ventura County Complete Count Committee will lead a Census Caravan on Saturday, June 20. The caravan – which will have 20 vehicles and 20 different representatives from organizations such as Food Share, the Ventura County Library, Líderes Campesinas, the Boys & Girls Clubs, Center for Employment Training (CET), and MICOP – will start its route at 1:00pm in the city of Fillmore in front of City Hall and travel through the cities of Santa Paula, Port Hueneme, and end in Oxnard by 4:00pm. The caravan will not have close contact with the public in order to observe social distancing protocols. This local caravan event coincides with statewide “Census Week of Action” activities, which are organized by the State and promote awareness of the importance of the Census in order to encourage residents to participate.

    Currently, 70% of Ventura County residents have participated in the Census and the county is ranked 4th in California for the percentage of residents who have responded to the Census survey. The county is currently trending above the national average for response rate to the Census. Achieving the highest percentage possible for response rate ensures that necessary funding is provided to local communities to support essentials program. In terms of largest hard-to-count populations, Ventura County ranks 59th out of 3,000 counties across the U.S.

    “Our local community-based and health and human services organizations rely on accurate Census data for funding, planning and ensuring that services and resources are available to communities in need,” said Sonia Kroth, Co-Chair of the Community Based Organizations/Health and Human Services Sub-Committee for the Complete Count Committee. “Our organizations are excited to collaborate to get the word out in this visible way in our hard-to-count communities. We want to really encourage those who have not yet responded to the 2020 Census to do so now!”

    The caravan is part of ongoing efforts to raise awareness about the importance of the Census in Ventura County. Through the collective effort of the County of Ventura, the Ventura County Community Foundation, and over 150 local area nonprofit organizations, government agencies and individuals, the Ventura County Complete Count Committee has conducted Census outreach since January 2019 to prepare and promote awareness about the Census and the local community services that benefit from the federal funding that is awarded through a complete count. Significant emphasis has been placed on reaching those considered hard to count.

    Actualmente, el 70 por ciento de los residentes del Condado de Ventura han participado en el Censo y el condado ocupa el cuarto lugar de todos los condados en California por el porcentaje de residentes que han respondido a la encuesta del Censo.

    “Nuestras organizaciones locales de servicios comunitarios y de salud dependen de datos precisos del Censo para financiar, planificar y garantizar que los servicios y recursos estén disponibles para las comunidades necesitadas”, dijo Sonia Kroth, copresidenta del Subcomite de las Organizaciones Comunitarias/Servicios Humanos y de Salud para el Comité del Conteo Completo. “Nuestras organizaciones están entusiasmadas de colaborar para correr la voz de esta manera visible en nuestras comunidades difíciles de contar. ¡Queremos realmente animar a aquellos que aún no han respondido al Censo 2020 para que lo hagan ahora!”

    La caravana es parte de los esfuerzos en curso para crear conciencia sobre la importancia del Censo en el Condado de Ventura. A través del esfuerzo colectivo del Condado de Ventura, la Ventura County Community Foundation y más de 150 organizaciones no lucrativas locales, agencias gubernamentales e individuos, el Comité de Conteo Completo del Condado de Ventura ha llevado a cabo actividades de divulgación del Censo desde enero del 2019 para preparar y promover la conciencia sobre el Censo y cómo se benefician los servicios comunitarios locales de los fondos federales se otorgan a través de un conteo completo. Se ha puesto un énfasis significativo en hacer divulgación a aquellas poblaciones consideradas difíciles de contar.
