This coming Wednesday, May 27th 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 build a better future and stronger communities for us all. And the federal funds we get that are informed by Census data will go a long way to helping with our COVID-19 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: Help build a better future and stronger communities in New Jersey. A complete count helps us get our fair share of federal fund. It’s safe, easy and important And it’s not too late to respond at 2020CENSUS.GOV.
Other Activities: Please feel free to also run related activities that day, such as interactive online Census information and support meet-ups and let us know about them.
