We're inviting creatives and storytellers to an evening create-a-thon! Over the course of five festive and intense hours, we’ll enjoy targeted briefs from amazing experts, connect with diverse and talented people, and collaboratively generate digital media by rapidly prototyping compelling messages that spread awareness about the Census and communicate the importance of a complete count in 2020.
Do you know that the Decennial Census--a counting of the United States population that occurs every ten years-- sets our country's trajectory for the next decade, determining congressional apportionment (the number of seats each state gets in the House of Representatives), redistricting, and the allocation of close to $800 billion dollars annually distributed to cities across the nation?
Historically, certain groups are undercounted at disproportionately higher rates during the Census. An undercount of children, underrepresented minorities, millennials, and seniors can result in reduced congressional representation and fewer local dollars essential for community services.
In 2020, for the first time ever, the American public will have the option of responding to the Census online. This presents new opportunities to communicate the importance of the census by creating compelling digital content to increase civic participation.
