Eddy Edwards, host of Caribbean Riddims radio show will, complete his Census form along with attorney Marlon Hill of The Peoples Politics, live on air – WZAB 880 AM – on Saturday, March 20, 2010 at 4pEST. Listeners will be encouraged to complete their own form during this live on air community action.
This month, thousands of families will receive a 2010 Census form in the mail. Upon receipt, families are encouraged to complete the form and mail it in promptly. The results from the 2010 Census will be used to help each community get its fair share of government funds for highways, schools, health facilities, and many other programs you and your neighbors need. Without a complete, accurate census, your community may not receive its fair share.
“We are hoping that this live moment will help many of our listeners to develop a level of trust and confidence in the process. The Census is a critical part of identifying our community and ensuring their piece of the American pie,” stated Eddy Edwards, producer and host of Caribbean Riddims.
“We are serious about recognizing and activating our personal power as a community. We want to affirm publicly to each other that we will get this done and to inspire each other collectively,” noted Marlon Hill, commentator on Caribbean Riddims in weekly segment, The Peoples Politics.
After completing the form, listeners will be encouraged to share with their family and friends, “I COUNTED TODAY, I HAVE THE POWER!”
