Not Too Late for Census

It is not too late to be counted! If you haven’t completed your census form yet, do it today. And if you are in a same-sex relationship, let the U.S. Census know. A key to the advancement of the rights of same-sex couples is for people first to know of our existence. For the first time in census history, the form allows for same-sex couples to count themselves as “married.” If you have been married, you should count yourself as married even if you live in a state that doesn’t recognize your relationship. If you have not been married, you can also select “unmarried partners.” For more information, check out the official U.S. Census web site.  Equality Illinois offers guidance on completing your form here. In addition, there is a site full of information about the census just for lgbt families called “Our Families Count.” Enjoy the following video from their web site:
