Video Blog: YouthAction Members Get Out the Count in the 2020 Census


April 1, 2020

Census Day is April 1st and YouthAction NYC is doing everything they can to get out the count in New York! The US Census Bureau has mailed all households instructions for completing the 2020 Census and our youth advocates are calling on friends and neighbors to get counted!Their virtual Census outreach campaign, Get Counted #YouthActionDay2020, is a way for young people and their allies to raise awareness about the importance of the Census from the comfort and safety of their own homes. YouthAction members created a Get Counted Toolkit that outlines step-by-step instructions on how to take action on social media, via e-mail, and over the phone with texts, calls and video chats.

They will also host a Get Counted Youth Social Media Takeover on Census Day, leveraging CCC’s platforms and their own to share the toolkit with a broader audience. YouthAction Members hope that New Yorkers will use and share the Get Counted Toolkit throughout April and beyond, until every one of us gets counted!
