I told you last week that Christopher “Ludacris” Bridges would be going door-t0-door for the U.S. Census, well now he’s officially started his Luda On The Block tour for the census 2010.
I’m serious about the black community being counted this time around. Otherwise we will have to wait another 10 years and that is unacceptable. Aren’t we tired of complaining?
Here’s an opportunity to make a change that will last for 10 years. You’re going to see me stop people on the street. I’m knocking on doors. I’m telling people living in African American communities that they have nothing to fear about the census. The information they provide is protected by law and will not be shared with the INS or any other Agency that could cause them harm.
The reality is that if they fill in the form and mail it back, it will help revive their community by improving schools, increasing jobs and job training, health clinics, emergency medical service, fire stations, elder care and more.
Check out photos + video of Luda’s first day on the job in Texas below:
“When I saw Ludacris come walking up to me on the street,” said one guy who’d had a close encounter in Dallas, “it made me think I was being Punk’d. I was like WTH. I’m going home to dig that form out of the junk mail pile and ask moms to fill it out and send it in. Hell, I’ll do it for her!”
Ludacris will be featured in 4 additional webisodes where we’ll get an up close, personal view of what some naysayers and other resisters really think about the Census.
The form was due April 1st, so if you haven’t sent it in someone, possibly Luda, may come knocking at your door. I just sent mine back last week.
