Pharr, Texas – The City of Pharr joins thousands of cities across the United States in acting proactively to ensure a complete count in each of our jurisdictions and municipalities during the fast-approaching 2020 Census, and has partnered with local school districts in Pharr to join efforts to promote the Census among Pharr families to ensure a complete count. 

Partnering districts include Pharr-San Juan-Alamo Independent School District, Hidalgo Independent School District, Valley View Independent School District, and Vanguard Academy Charter School. The partners have joined forces and will be holding a Parental Workshop for all Pharr families to become informed about the 2020 Census process and its importance to inform funding, representation, and public policy. The goal of the workshop is to encourage parents to become advocates for their communities and assist the city in the efforts of collecting the count in 2020. As a reminder, federal law protects the confidentiality of all individual responses the Census Bureau collects. 

The Parental Workshop will be held at 9 am on Tuesday, November 12, 2019, at the City of Pharr Development and Research Center (850 W. Dicker Road in Pharr). 

All media and the public are invited to attend.
