Ensure We’re Counted in the US Census and American Community Survey

The Trump Administration is trying to make us invisible by excluding LGBTQ people from the 2020 Census and the American Community Survey (ACS). This is yet another attack on LGBTQ people’s freedom, justice, and equity. Please sign our petition to the Trump Administration to demand that they reverse their decision not to collect data about LGBTQ people and their families.

Petition to the Trump Administration:

Our community is strong and resilient, and we deserve to be seen. We Count.

Your recent decisions to remove sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI) questions from HHS surveys, to halt progress on including SOGI questions in the Census and American Community Survey, and to stop evaluation of HUD LGBTQ programs make it seem like you don’t agree.

We won’t stand for it. We demand to be counted.

We support collection of sexual orientation and gender identity information in the Census, in the American Community Survey, in the National Survey of Older Americans Act Participants, and the Centers for Independent Living’s Annual Program Performance Report.

We Count, so count us!

Genders listed below are required by the federal government and agencies. They do not represent all gender identities.
