5/12/2020 - Census Day of Action

This Thursday, May 14th is a statewide Census Day of Action and we are again asking everyone to Call Those Who Count On You to see how they’re doing and to ask them to fill out their all-important Census.

 For this to happen we need your help. If you could please send this information out to your networks and client and constituent lists, and ask them to participate, you would be taking big step to help our New Jersey communities over the next 10 years. Accurate Census data will be very instrumental in helping to address the effects of COVID-19 through related federal funding that would be associated to recovery. Feel free to use this email as a basis for the email you send out.

We are asking as many folks as possible to participate in our Friends and Family Outreach call program. It’s simple to do and you can do it from the comfort of your own home. Everything you need is provided right here to start making calls, including a call script in Spanish: https://nj.gov/state/census-outreach.shtml

 Here’s how the call program works – You call at least five (5) friends, neighbors or family members to check and see how they are doing. Then also ask if they’ve had a chance to fill out their Census. If they haven’t, we’ve provided info so that you can tell them why it’s so important. Then ask those who said yes to call 5 of their friends and family members - And so on, and so on.

As a friend, neighbor, or relative you’re a trusted voice. And there is no one more effective than you to ask those you know to fill out their Census.

Key message for the Day of Action: The amount of New Jersey’s federal funding related to our COVID recovery depends on the completeness of our Census count. It’s that important. It’s not too late to respond to the 2020 Census while being safe and practicing social distancing at home.
