The 2020 Census is right around the corner. In order to ensure everyone is counted in 2020, stakeholders will be creating get out the count (GOTC) plans for their communities. This section of the get out the count toolkit will go over all you need to know to get counted in 2020.
Stakeholders play a critical role in ensuring a fair and accurate count in 2020. The Census Counts Coalition has pulled together a comprehensive toolkit to support Get Out the Count efforts. See more about the background and purpose of the toolkit here.
This AAJC webinar covers the best field and communications strategies for getting out the count. We go over resources on how to mobilize communities to participate in the 2020 Census, language assistance, top messages that resonate with communities, social media tools, and more. The webinar also goes over how to foster partnerships and how to best work with the Census Bureau to achieve an accurate count of our communities.
