Here is a draft email to jump-start your 2020 Census advocacy. Send this email to your network to remind everyone to complete their household census as soon as possible!

Example Email:

Hey there!

Did you know the 2020 Census has officially started? You will receive a green slip in your mailbox and can complete the Census by mail or online.

I completed my Census because it is really important (and required by law):

The Census helps the federal government dole out $675+ billion to vital programs such as Medicaid (health care), food stamps, housing vouchers. It is also used to determine the number of seats that each state will have in the U.S. House of Representatives and is used to draw congressional and state legislative districts.

Please complete your 2020 Census today! Let’s do our part to help our state. And when you’re done, forward this email to your network and post about the Census on social media. If you tag @OrangeUGoing you’ll get a share!

Thank you,
