SÍ NOS CUENTAN, SÍ CONTAMOS
ACLAMO is perfectly positioned to assist the Montgomery County Census Committee Monco PA Counts in ensuring that everyone in the Latino community is counted in the 2020 national census. To that end, ACLAMO workers have been participating in meetings and training to maximize the success of this effort.
- to identify previously undercounted areas of Norristown and Pottstown
- to increase census participation in areas with hard-to-reach individuals
- to communicate information and raise awareness of census work
- to work with community partners and community leaders to provide informational and educational workshops, online postings and handouts about the importance and the process of competing the census form.

IT'S A WRAP!
Having provided enjoyable and educationally meaningful activities to over 200 children and young people at five different sites, ACLAMO summer programs came to a celebratory conclusion in August.
MAKING THE INTERNET ACCESSIBLE
PLAYING THE HAND SHE IS DEALT
The skill of knowing how to make maximum use of the cards in her hand has proved valuable throughout Susan´s life. With the goal of helping people, she began college on a pre-medicine track. However, receiving her first C in a college chemistry class dampened her plans to become a doctor. So she continued her focus on serving others by enrolling in law school. While working as in intern in a county prosecutor's office during her third year of law school, Susan's organizational and legal abilities availed her the Court's permission to appear in court without observation to represent the prosecutor's office. In that role, she tried both bench and jury trials. Just before Susan took her bar exam, the attorney heading the traffic/misdemeanor division of the prosecutor's office was abruptly fired. The county prosecutor advised Susan that he wanted her to head the department upon receiving her bar results - and she did.
