Happy Census Day!
Posted by HE-SVE Forum on April 7, 2020
April 1st, Census Day, is an important point of reference for the Census. It’s the date we use to take a snapshot of the country – a snapshot that has huge implications for our democracy for 10 years to come. As a foundational part of our democracy, it’s incredibly important that we have an accurate and complete count. Obviously the onset of COVID-19 has impacted many campuses’ Get Out The Count efforts.
Although the day has passed, The Higher Education-Student Voter Engagement (HE-SVE) Forum has identified a number of Census related resources:
The team from the Census Open Innovation Labs (COIL), who were on our February call, are excited to share that their partners at U.Group and Rock The Vote have officially launched creativesforthecount.org, a repository site for content created at COIL events and beyond. This helps organizations who need content to search for relevant content so they can do better outreach to hard-to-count communities. You can peruse some of the materials, download and share, or upload your own here.
