District Attorney Eric Gonzalez and other local elected officials took part in a Census March through Southern and Central Brooklyn during the weekend to encourage people to fill out the 2020 census.

Along with U.S. Rep. Nydia Velázquez, Public Advocate Jumaane Williams, Assemblymember Jo Ann Simon and others, Gonzalez traveled all over Brooklyn on Sunday with a simple message — there is still time to fill out the census.

“I was proud to participate in today’s Census March through Southern and Central Brooklyn to educate our neighbors about how the 2020 Census impacts public safety,” Gonzalez said. “An accurate count means more resources and services for our communities.”

The census is mandated by the U.S. Constitution and conducted every 10 years by the U.S. Census Bureau. It’s the official count of the U.S. population and is used to determine the number of U.S. representatives each state has and how to distribute federal money.

After Sunset Park, Gonzalez and others went to Grand Army Plaza.
