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.
