Livermore census caravan among 5 planned in Bay Area this weekend

Local event from 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, starting at church

This weekend, 2020 Census caravans will drive through five Bay Area locations to allow residents to respond to the 2020 Census.

The caravans will be going through Livermore, Healdsburg, San Jose, Santa Rosa and East Palo Alto.

The goal of the caravanning is to urge residents in hard-to-count communities to complete the census, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. The caravans will be following safety guidelines by social distancing at all times.

According to the Census Bureau, the message behind the caravanning is to remind families that they can still get counted, and that every citizen, no matter their identity, counts.

Additionally, it allows local city officials to ensure that their cities and counties receive an accurate count.
