Event description
We Count New York! Join the movement to get Asian Pacific Americans in New York City counted in the 2020 Census!

About this Event

The APA Complete Count Committee is hosting a free training on the 2020 Census!

Designed for organizers and volunteers who will do census outreach in Asian Pacific American communities, this training will cover:

• How to complete the 2020 Census

• Outreach and organizing tools

• Tailored messaging to encourage participation in the Census

• Strategies for reaching "hard-to-count" members of the Asian Pacific American communities

------------------------------

Breakout sessions will go deeper into:

1) Understanding the Census: The census process is complicated. If you’re new to census work or want to learn more, this interactive workshop is designed for you. Through several fun activities, we’ll review what the census is, cover the 2020 Census timeline, and discuss anticipated challenges in 2020.

2) Communicating About the Census: You’re ready to do outreach, but what do you say? There are a hundred reasons to fill out the census, but what matters most to whom? In this workshop, you’ll hear about the importance of targeted messaging and how to talk to community members about the census in ways that resonate with them. You’ll also have the opportunity to draft an “elevator pitch” and practice with your peers.

3) Planning Outreach for the Census: You have your outreach plan and messages crafted. Now what? This session is designed for leaders of groups big and small. You’ll learn best practices for outreach, particularly hard-to-count people in our communities . You’ll learn about partnering with other organizations, meeting people where they are, and how to mobilize your group to maximize outreach efforts.

Registration Deadline: EXTENDED to Monday, January 13, 2020*
