Early childhood providers and others who work with young children and their families have a critical role to play in making sure young Colorado children are counted in the 2020 Census, and a new toolkit is here to help. The U.S. Census Bureau and other organizations have put together lots of resources to help providers promote the 2020 Census among families with young children, but these resources can be hard to find and aren’t always in one place. The new Early Childhood Census Toolkit compiles links to these materials, including flyers to share with families, FAQs about the census for providers and even a 2020 Census activity booklet for young children, all in one convenient document. The toolkit also includes sample language that can be used in newsletters, as well as social media posts to share about the 2020 Census between now and next summer.

 

The 2020 Census is less than four months away, and Colorado needs your help to make sure every kid counts! Click here to download the toolkit and start using it today.
