“Long ago, the Supreme Court decided that "separate but equal" could never truly be equal. Nowhere is this principle more important than in the communities we choose to call home. Diverse communities are not something to be feared…we're calling for a re-imagining of the "Suburban Lifestyle Dream" -- one where everyone has access, and anyone can belong.”

There are several communities designated as “hard to count” in Cook County, including children under 18. If children are underreported in the 2020 Census, it will impact services and federal funds allocated to them over the next decade.
