  • U.S. Census Bureau Online Press Kit – tools you can use, from video to posters.
  • Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law Census Protection Hotline Partner Toolkit – The Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law (“Lawyers’ Committee”), in partnership with the Arab American Institute, Asian Americans Advancing Justice | AAJC, and NALEO Educational Fund, have launched 2020 Census hotlines for the communities they serve.  The suite of hotlines will operate in over ten languages and serves as a crucial resource for individuals who have questions or concerns regarding the upcoming 2020 Census. These civil rights organizations will be coordinating to provide information about the Census, answer questions, and when needed, follow up on challenges to participating in the count.

Campaigns focusing on Undercount of Children

  • Count All Kids Messaging and Outreach Kit – The Count All Kids Committee created this campaign to ensure parents/caregivers count all young kids and babies in the 2020 Census. The following resource center is for partners and affiliates to share messaging materials, collateral, and social assets to help you educate and motivate parents, caregivers, and heads of households to count all kids.
  • Sesame Street Workshop Census Resources –  Their tools promote four messages: the census is safe and private, it’s easier to complete than ever, doing so brings important resources to your neighborhood for ten years—and, most importantly, all kids count!
  • Nickelodeon Resources – sign in and create an account, email required to download materials.
  • Federation of Pediatric Organizations – Download posters to hang up in waiting rooms, distribute to patients, have in waiting rooms, etc. (This are mostly U.S. Census Bureau posters that are geared toward counting children – handy all in one place).
