2020 Census PSA – Arizona



Reported by Lal Vul

The Asian Community in Arizona has once again gathered together in unity to promote the 2020 Census. The Asian community in Arizona consists of many different cultural groups from many different countries and today they are using these rich varieties of languages, styles of dresses and stories to promote the 2020 Census within the Arizona Asian Community.

The 2020 Census is arriving and the Asian Community members want to share the importance of participation among their communities. Let us watch the following videos and listen to their earnest messages.

The participants in the following videos are members of the various Asian communities in Arizona. They warmly accepted this volunteer opportunity when AACCCC (Arizona AANHPI Census Complete Count Committee) requested participation for this PSA (Public Service Announcement). The AACCCC would like to extend their gratitude to all the participants and staff members that made this PSA possible.
