We The People


Our goal is to educate, engage, and enlighten the community. After all, we’re in this together. We The People unites great minds in meaningful dialogue about pressing issues facing us, and our world, today. Here, you have a voice, free from judgment. Here, we discuss the issues on our minds at the local and broader level through advocacy trainings, issue-based education, and civic connection opportunities while meeting our mission to seek out balanced solutions. The goal: to effect change that will result in a better life for all.


The 2020 Census is underway and you can respond online, by phone, or by mail. Responding now will minimize the need for the Census Bureau to send census takers out into communities to follow up. The self-response phase has been extended to October 31.

  • To complete the Census by phone, call 1.844.330.2020
  • To complete the Census by mail, fill out the full questionnaire you received in the mail and mail it in
  • To complete the Census online, visit 2020census.gov
