Christopher “Ludacris” Bridges is doing his part to lend support to the government for the 2010 Census.
Just weeks after the drop of his seventh studio album, “Battle of The Sexes”, Luda is hitting the streets for a nationwide campaign to encourage people to take “ten minutes for ten questions” that can potentially change their community.
In support of the brief government survey, Luda’s making stops in several cities to visit radio stations and premier his viral webisodes including New York on April 5, Washington D.C. on April 6 and his hometown of Atlanta on April 9.
He previously visited Dallas on March 19 and New Orleans on the 23.
His visits will give fans an opportunity to log on to participating radio station websites and write how their neighborhoods could benefit from 2010 Census funding. Certain fans will be selected to meet and discuss the 2010 Census with him in person.
Speaking on his efforts to make sure his fans are accounted for, Luda released a statement saying,
“I look at our communities now and I see many empty lots, closed clinics, dilapidated schools and an overall breakdown of social services for the poor and elderly. Today is a day for change. I plan to knock on doors in various neighborhoods around this country to try and dispel any myths about the Census. It’s important that we all stand up and be counted so we can help create potential financial opportunities for our dying communities.”
Ludacris and the Census hope his efforts will help account for those typically unaccounted for, young single African-American males, single women with children, the poor and underprivileged, people with criminal issues, and immigrants.
