Why It's Important to Us

2020 has been a historical year. And it’s not over yet. With COVID-19, social unrest, a presidential election on the horizon and the U.S. Census, there has never been a better time to make your voice heard.  

Why is it important to us? At Cox, we have a long history of championing inclusion, diversity and civic engagement – it’s part of doing the right thing, always. This year marks the 100th anniversary of Gov. James M. Cox, our founder, running for president (with Franklin Delano Roosevelt as his running mate!). A tradition of patriotism and civic duty runs through our roots. Gov. Cox's commitment remains the foundation of our values today and is reflected in our purpose: Empower People Today to Build a Better Future for the Next Generation.

To ensure we are making a positive impact on our communities, Cox is showing our support for the census by promoting it internally to our employeeand running public service announcements for the U.S. Census in our Cox Communications markets.
