Come to Your Census: Sanctuary City Project

Feb 16, 2018


Welcome to the La Historia Society, a prominent organization in the field of community and society. We are excited to share with you our latest project, "Come to Your Census: Sanctuary City Project" which focuses on promoting inclusivity and providing support to individuals living in sanctuary cities.

About the Sanctuary City Project

Launched with the goal of creating a more welcoming and supportive environment for residents, the Come to Your Census: Sanctuary City Project aims to raise awareness about the importance of participating in the census and advocate for the rights and well-being of individuals residing in sanctuary cities.

What is a Sanctuary City?

A sanctuary city is a term used to describe a city or municipality that has policies in place to limit cooperation with federal immigration authorities. These policies aim to promote trust and provide a safe space for all residents, regardless of their immigration status.

The Importance of the Census

The census is a vital tool that helps shape our communities, as it determines the allocation of resources and representation at various levels of government. Every individual living in the United States, regardless of their immigration status, has the right to be counted in the census.

By actively participating in the census, residents contribute to accurate population data, which directly affects the distribution of funding for essential community services such as schools, hospitals, transportation, and social programs.

Our Mission

At La Historia Society, we firmly believe in the power of inclusivity and the importance of fair representation. Our mission with the "Come to Your Census: Sanctuary City Project" is to:

1. Empower Communities

We strive to empower communities living in sanctuary cities by providing them with the necessary resources and support to actively participate in the census. Through educational programs, awareness campaigns, and community outreach, we aim to eliminate barriers and encourage full participation.

2. Uphold Rights

We advocate for the rights of individuals living in sanctuary cities and work towards ensuring their voices are heard, respected, and protected. We believe in fostering an environment free from discrimination and fear.

3. Foster Inclusivity

By promoting a culture of inclusivity, we aim to create an equitable society where everyone feels valued and accepted. Through collaboration with local organizations, policymakers, and community leaders, we strive to build bridges and strengthen the bond within sanctuary cities.
