NEED YOUR ACTION - Census related information in Arabic, Urdu, Hindi, Bangla, Somali, and French languages

As'Salaamu Alaiykum -

With the end of the census timeline (September 30th) approaching very quickly, we wanted to send a quick reminder about you all getting involved in the 2020 census. It only happens every 10 years and if we are under-represented we, as a community, lose heavily on government programs and benefits. It's important that YOU ALL RESPOND to the 2020 census.

Also, if the Muslim population is under-represented, our voices become that much weaker - for the next 10 years to come! So, this not only affects you immediately but affects your children over the next decade!

To make it easy for you, we've translated the 2020 census related info in 6 different languages,
- Arabic
- Urdu
- Hindi
- Bangla
- Somali
- French

Please visit the below link and click on the appropriate links to read about the 2020 census in the language of your comfort, in'shaa'Allah.

Also, another important reminder...CPCOM is also collecting community information for the 2020 census and voter registration. This is an attempt to get to know the Muslim population in our area and so beneficial programs and services for our community can be proposed to the legislative representatives. It's important that you respond to this 3 minutes survey and mobilize our community to do this action today and tomorrow, InShaAllah!

Note: Even if you've completed the Census 2020 form from the government you still need to complete the survey from CPCOM. Your data will be secured within CPCOM and will not be used for solicitation purposes.

Your action on these 2 census related items are required by September 30, 2020. So, PLEASE TAKE ACTION NOW.

Jazak'Allahu Kh'airan for your understanding and action on this.
