April 1st was Census Day – but the Census is still ongoing. People who have not responded can still respond by Internet, phone and by mail. The 2020 Census is taking place and it important for Rural America to be counted!
The City of Alpine encourages participation in a social media challenge by taking the 2020 Census Social Media Pledge!
For ways you can help promote the 2020 Census please visit: SPREAD THE WORD
Everyone Counts, and we are asking you to help us share this message within our community in the manner you deem best.
It is important to count EVERYONE in our rural communities! We want everyone, especially those within rural communities, to respond to the Census and to challenge their friends to do the same and to challenge their friends to do the same.
During the week of August 2-8, we want Rural America to say in with one voice: It is Time to Be Counted! The more people are encouraged, the more people respond to the 2020 Census!
Here are a few suggested ways you can help us get the word out on social media.
a. Include #ShapeYourFuture and #2020 Census in your social media posts.
b. Share information about the census and why it's important to respond. Everyone can play a role in ensuring that EVERYONE is counted once, only once, and in the right place.
c. Record a video on your phone or tablet device about why it is important for everyone to complete the Census.
d. Pledge to Complete the 2020 Census
- You can inspire others. Tell everyone—your friends and family, neighbors and co-workers—that you will complete the census, and that they should respond now, too!
- Post the pledge to social channels to show your support in responding to the census.
- Customize your pledge (English / Spanish). Tag other friends and challenge them to take the pledge and complete the census as well.
e. Instagram Stories: Post the pledge to your IG story with and tag the friends you are challenging, then post a second slate with the blank pledge so friends can easily share the graphic from there!
Sample Copy: DYK the #2020Census informs hundreds of billions in funding for things like education and health programs that communities need? I pledge to complete the 2020 Census and I am challenging [@ your friends!] to do the same.
d. The more people who participate, the more impactful, so share this asset far and wide to your network before August 2nd, 2020, and ask them to support as well.
