creatives for the count: census pride

Creatives for the Count – Census Pride

Join an afternoon create-a-thon to help Get Out The Count for members of the LGBTQ community! Click here for the invitation, details, and to RSVP.

When: Thursday, June 13, 12:00-5:00pm ET. (Lunch included, optional reception to follow.)

Where: Microsoft Innovation and Policy Center — 901 K Street NW Washington  

What:  Over the course of 5 hours, we’ll dive into targeted briefs from national and local LGBTQ advocacy organizations, connect with a diverse group of talented people, and collaboratively generate digital media and compelling messages that spread awareness about the 2020 Census to communicate the importance of a complete and accurate count in 2020 for the LGBTQ community.

Why: Check out the National LGBTQ Task Force’s Fact Sheet on why the Census matters for LGBTQ people. We want to make sure that organizations leading the way on 2020 Census outreach are equipped with great content that informs and inspires people to participate. As trusted voices, it is vital that grassroots and advocacy organizations’ efforts are amplified online to reach as many of their community members as possible.

#CreativesForTheCount matches creative talent (designers, copywriters, content strategists, videomakers, etc.) with grassroots and advocacy Get Out the Count efforts to help amplify their digital outreach capacity, with the ultimate goal of increasing response rates among the hardest-to-count communities that they serve.

Join: RSVP by June 7th, and share with stakeholders vested in a complete and accurate count for LGBTQ communities.

#CreativesForTheCount is a national event series led by the Census Open Innovation Labs at the U.S. Census Bureau. Creative professionals (designers, copywriters, filmmakers, digital strategists, etc.) work with organizations leading Census outreach efforts in Hard-to-Count communities to generate digital content, with the ultimate goal of increasing response rates among the hardest-to-count communities that those organizations serve.
