By April 1, 2020, all Americans will receive an invitation to complete the 2020 census. It is important that you and your family members get counted as Carpatho-Rusyn. If we indicate our Carpatho-Rusyn ethnicity on the census, and the number of us counted as Carpatho-Rusyn increases since the last census, this increases our chances as a community to access funding and programs that can support our culture in the United States. So when you complete your Census form, go to Question No.9, check White (or your race) THEN fill in the words CARPATHO-RUSYN in the blocks provided under that line.
So, be counted on your census form-and tell all your friends, neighbors, church fellows, and family who are Carpatho-Rusyn to fill it out too.
If you write Slavic, Lemko, Carpatho-Russian or Ruthenian there is no guarantee you will be counted as Carpatho-Rusyn.
