The National Education Association (NEA) has launched a comprehensive, multifaceted campaign to help educators teach about the U.S. Census. NEA has also partnered with Los Angeles-based artist Victor “Marka27” Quiñonez to create a series of posters that depict different, undercounted groups, such as students who are of Middle Eastern descent, Latinx, African American, or those who have a disability, with the words “I Count.” These posters will be a visual inspiration in classrooms across the country and provide an opportunity to ensure all residents are counted in the census. Educators can receive stickers for their students to wear that say, “I Count,” free lesson plans and activities, and sample handouts in multiple languages to send home.  Learn more at nea.org/census.
