Stories for Change

The Census Counts campaign launched Stories for Change, an expanding and downloadable series of videos, quote graphics, and infographics, featuring whose lived experiences show the deep connections between census participation and a wide spectrum of advocacy, including racial justice, immigration, disability, labor, and faith.

Kit de Herramientas de fe Para el Censo 2020 — (2020 Census Faith Toolkit)

Los líderes de fe se encuentran entre los mensajeros más confiables en nuestras comunidades y están posicionados para jugar un papel clave para asegurar que todos sean contados en el Censo 2020. Este kit de herramientas está diseñado para equipar a los líderes de fe como usted, con recursos, mensajes y pasos de acción para ayudarle a asegurarse de que cada adulto y niño en su comunidad sea contado, independientemente de su raza, tradición de fe, estatus migratorio o económico.

Count All Kids Posters

Children should be included on your 2020 Census form—and not just children related to you, but any kids living at your address most of the time. When babies and children are included, the programs that support them get the funding they need.

Webinar: Census 2020 Activities for Adult Education Classrooms and Programs

This webinar described resources and activities aimed at mobilizing adult education students and their communities to get out the census count. Teaching resources shared in the webinar address census basics (what it is, why it matters, and how to participate) as well as census issues (such as past misuse of census data and what’s different now) as they build language, literacy, and numeracy skills. We will also share examples of program-wide campaigns that energize students and give them an opportunity to practice their leadership and civic skills.

GOTC Field Guidance

The Leadership Conference, State Voices, and Asian Pacific American Labor Alliance (APALA), along with other national hub partners have pulled together this guidance for census outreach in the field, the Dos and Don’ts of community outreach and door-to-door canvassing, along with other resources.

Webinar: Best Practices and Staying Legal: Census Phone and Texting Outreach

As we approach the 2020 Census, many organizations nationally and locally are planning to use phone calls and peer-to-peer texting programs to Get Out The Count. The Census Bureau recently released guidance around outreach that seemed to prohibit utilizing such tactics to drive responses to the Census 2020. However, this messaging does not fully reflect the outreach options that organizations have when promoting participation in the Census. To ensure that everyone stay in compliance while maximizing census outreach, the Census Counts coalition is hosting a webinar to walk through what the guidance means, what organizations can and cannot do, and some best practices from the field.

#CountMeIn

Communities that don’t get fully counted in 2020 will miss out for the next ten years. This is the time to get involved. The Census counts. So do you.
