2020 Census Toolkit

2020 Census Member Action Toolkit

***NOTICE 5/5/20: Since the COVID-19 pandemic has impeded the ability of Census workers from going door-to-door, the US Census Bureau is actively making calls to residents about their Census. If you receive a call and are unsure if it's genuine, please do the following: 

1. Ask for name and appropriate credentials/official reference number from caller;

2. Do not give out any personal or financial information;

3. Check credentials by calling the regional office in Atlanta: (404) 730-3832. 

Member Action Toolkit

Use the resources below to urge families and caregivers in your practice to participate in the 2020 Census!

Parents and caregivers need to hear from trusted providers about the importance of participating in the Census and counting all of their children. Whomever is living with the child/children on April 1, 2020 (whether it is their permanent guardian or not) is the person who should count them in their census form.

Watch a short video about the Census from Dr. Christoph Diasio, partner at Sandhill Pediatrics and newly elected president of NCPeds. 

To help you spread the word among your own staff, colleagues, and families, we have created this toolkit for you to use as you see fit. 

We encourage your practice to think outside the box in order to promote this to families—you can
host a promotional event for it, use your practice’s social media, or conduct interviews with the media about the importance of the 2020 Census. 

NC Child created YouTube videos to explain the Census - click below to view and be sure to watch for our very own Dr. John Rusher!
