Our Goals

MALDEF’s census initiative focuses on encouraging Latino participation in the 2010 Census through partnerships with community-based organizations, and a national and targeted media campaign.

MALDEF has launched this comprehensive, nationwide education campaign to:

  • Inform the Latino community about the importance of the 2010 Census and its implications for civil rights;
  • Encourage all members of our “hard to count” communities to complete their census forms and take charge of their political future;
  • Empower Latinos of all ages and socioeconomic backgrounds.
