Creatives for the Count: Pride Edition
Did you know?
The next Census count is coming up in 2020
So what’s the big deal?
We know the importance of voting and the impacts it has on our nation every election day. But what about the Decennial Census? The count of the United States population 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 how the allocation of close to $700 billion dollars is annually distributed annually to cities across the nation.
LGBTQ communities are overwhelmingly undercounted in the Census. But we can help change that.
Can we count you in?
We’re inviting creatives and storytellers to an afternoon create-a-thon to encourage a complete and accurate count for the LGBTQ community! Over the course of five informative and festive 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 counting the LGBTQ community. You’ll be joined by representatives from the National LGBTQ Task Force, Rock the Vote, the U.S. Census Bureau, and Microsoft. We can’t wait to see you there!
