Pima is part of a coalition led by the Pima Association of Governments to tell students about Census 2020. A key message for students: An accurate count leads to better decisions on issues important to teens and young adults.
In addition to a comprehensive civic education campaign, Pima plans to place dedicated computer terminals at each of its five campuses for students to use to complete the census form online.
