Common Cause Rhode Island Congratulates former Gov. Gina Raimondo on her Confirmation as U.S. Commerce Secretary in Time to Oversee Final Stages of the Census

Common Cause Rhode Island worked with Secretary Raimondo on Census 2020 outreach in Rhode Island. She spoke up early with concerns about then-President Trump’s effort to unconstitutionally exclude undocumented immigrants. She worked to raise awareness of the Census Bureau’s end-to-end test which was held in Providence County in 2018. She formed Rhode Island’s first-ever statewide “Complete Count Committee” to ensure that all Rhode Islanders would be included in 2020 Census data — including members of communities that are traditionally “hard to count.” And she included money in her state budget to help fund outreach efforts.
