Rapper Ludacris is the latest star to encourage people to take part in the 2010 US census.
“I look at our communities now and I see many empty lots, closed clinics, dilapidated schools and an overall breakdown of social services for the poor and elderly,” he said. “Today is a day for change. I plan to knock on doors in various neighborhoods around this country to try and dispel any myths about the census. It’s important that we all stand up and be counted so we can help create potential financial opportunities for our dying communities.”
The musician will visit Dallas, New Orleans, New York, Washington DC and Atlanta as part of his campiagn next month.
Earlier this month, Demi Lovato used Twitter to encourage her fans to take part in the census, while Eva Longoria recorded a special PSA in which she said: “It will also support maternal and child healthcare as well as improve our highways, bridges and roads. Your participation in the census will help create job training programs and help improve emerging and disaster recovery services.”
