#HTownCounts


Houston in Action is activating, educating, and mobilizing for a complete count for #2020Census. Our partners and members are a comprehensive, coordinated, data-driven field operation including the work of a regional community partner, a handful of roaming partner organizers, a group of canvassing supervisors and their teams, a cohort of civic engagement organizers, in addition to teams of outreach partners and organizations trained and resourced to help Houston and Harris County reduce the undercount for 2020 Census.

Please visit our Census and COVID-19 response page for more information about how our field operations have been affected.
