67,000 black men could go unaccounted for in Georgia in 2020

There are roughly 1.6 million black men currently living in Georgia, and research indicates that 67,000 of them are at risk of not being counted in the 2020 census, according to Stacey Abrams’s nonprofit Fair Count. This could cost their communities approximately $154 million a year in funding for the next 10 years. That’s why it’s the goal of the former Georgia Democratic leader, through Fair Count and the Black Men Count initiative, to ensure that hard-to-count populations, including black men, are properly accounted for.
