Every ten years the US government conducts a survey of all people living in the United States. This year the Census includes the ability for people to write in their own race. This means that if your heritage is from Kurdistan, you can say so on the Census form.
It's time to be counted!
Census forms should have been mailed to every address by now. The census is the opportunity to know how many people originally from Kurdistan are now living in the United States. It will help the community to be counted when it matters. Census results help the US federal government allocate funding for health clinics, schools, jobs and education, among other resources and facilities.
In the census form, on the page about Race, check the box that says
WHITE, and then write Kurdish, or Chaldean, Syriac, Assyrian, Yezidi, Kurdish-Yezidi, or Turkman, in the blank box immediately below.
On the same page about Race, check the box that says
SOME OTHER RACE and then write Kurdish, or Chaldean, Syriac, Assyrian, Yezidi, Kurdish-Yezidi, or Turkman, in the blank box immediately below.
