"I Am Taiwanese American" Census Campaign
When a community is under-counted, it risks being under-represented and under-funded. The census counts everyone residing in the United States. This includes non-citizens and international students. The census shapes public policy and funding to our communities. We are calling all Taiwanese and Taiwanese Americans to: Check "Other Asian" and write in "Taiwanese" on the 2020 Census.
"I Am Taiwanese American" Census Campaign features Taiwanese and Taiwanese American stories through photos and words. Everyone is encouraged to submit stories about Taiwanese heritage, culture, identity and to pledge to write in "Taiwanese" on US census 2020.
