Support your digital engagement with activities like chalking the sidewalks in your community. For example, social media reminders could be combined with “Chalk the Walk” reminders that ask your stakeholders and social media followers to chalk “last chance to be counted in the #2020Census” on their sidewalks.
The U.S. Constitution mandates a census of the population every 10 years. The 2020 Census counts everyone who lives in the U.S. on April 1, 2020. Census statistics help determine the number of seats each state holds in the U.S. House of Representatives and how billions of dollars in federal funds will be allocated by state, local, and federal lawmakers every year for the next 10 years.
