Faith Communities Census Weekend of Action

 In March, the Census Bureau encouraged the Faith-based community to share the importance of the 2020 Census with their members and congregants. The success of that weekend has prompted the Census Bureau to ask the community to offer that encouragement during another weekend in July.

 During the weekend of July 24, 25 & 26, the Census Bureau is asking the Faith-based community to participate in the Faith Communities Census Weekend of Action. During that weekend, churches and organizations are encouraged to encourage people to respond to the census by placing information in their bulletins, on their websites, in their social media posts, from their pulpit announcements and even in their sermon messages.

 The Faith-based community is very influential with those they serve…which is why the Census Bureau is asking the community’s for help a second time in July.

 If your church or organization plans to take any actions to promote the 2020 Census during the Faith-Communities Census Weekend of Action please let me know by replying to this message.

 

 A decade of funding will be determined by how many people are counted in the 2020 Census in your community in the next 111 days. Your encouragement and persistence will make a difference for the next decade. Missing responses mean missing dollars. Act now to get your share.
