To the U.S. Census Bureau: Count the LGBTQ community.

Many LGBTQ Americans face higher rates of homelessness, loss of employment, and income inequality.

If we don't have data on these challenges, we can't effectively tackle them.

It’s critical that we know how many LGBTQ people are unemployed, live in poverty, and use federal programs to survive.

We must include questions related to sexuality or gender identity in the 2020 U.S. Census.
