Cardi B is all about politics these days, and the rapper posted a PSA urging New York City residents to take part in the 2020 Census.
“This year, we have the power to decide our city’s future—not just for the next four years, but for the next ten, by getting counted in the census,” Cardi says. “If you want to stand up to the status quo and defy people in power who want to silence us, start by getting counted in the census.”
The rapper recorded two versions -- one in English and one in Spanish.
Cardi continued, “2020 is a huge opportunity to make our voice heard. This year we have the power to decide our city’s future, not just for the next four years but for the next 10 by getting counted in the census. The census is about power, money and respect for our communities. If our city’s undercounted, we risk being underrepresented, especially our communities of color.”
