Black Census Project 2023

For far too long, Black communities have been left out of the conversation – often spoken about, and rarely listened to. But that ends now with the Black Census Project 2023 – the largest survey of Black people in the U.S. in 157 years.

We’ve spoken to over 200,000 Black people from across the country about our experiences, concerns, and dreams for the future. The information gathered from the Black Census will be used to identify priority issues for our communities, inform public policy, and shape an agenda created for us, by us.


We couldn’t do this work without our community partners! The Black Census Project 2023 is proud to have over 40 partners supporting the Black Census Project! 

Our partners work to build Black power in their communities and we couldn’t be more excited to collaborate with them on the Black Census Project. Click below to learn more about each of our partners.

2018 Black Census Project

In 2018, over 30,000 Black people from across the country took the inaugural Black Census, sharing with us their views, concerns, and dreams for the future. The findings clarified the diversity of issues impacting our communities and revealed real solutions to some of the most pressing challenges.

Check out the findings from the inaugural Black Census Project.
