Justice, census participation urged at Sunday’s bike ride

Participants were encouraged to complete the 2020 census, which a judge recently extended until the end of October. It can be completed online, by calling a toll-free line or by mailing back the paper questionnaire. There is no citizenship question on the census, and all information is kept confidential.

Registrations are still being accepted for the Sept. 27th bike ride, which begins at Columbus Park. Riders will travel 13 miles through Chicago, Oak Park, Forest Park and Maywood. The Chicago Police Department will ride along and provide vehicle escort.
