As trusted messengers, nonprofits can play an important role in driving Census participation in hard-to-count communities. Nonprofits that are interested in learning more about and getting involved with the 2020 Census can:

  • find and join their local Complete Count Committee using this tool on the Secretary of State’s website;
  • promote job opportunities with the Census Bureau within their networks; and
  • visit massnonprofit.org/2020census for an up-to-date list of tools and resources to aid in Census public education and outreach.

MNN will provide additional information and resources as the 2020 Census draws closer. Contact Fernando Martinez with any questions or comments.
