Census Project Launches Twitter Campaign Regarding ACS

In June, the House Appropriations Committee expects to act on all 12 of its Fiscal Year 2023 appropriations bills, including the Commerce, Justice, Science Appropriations bill, which funds the Census Bureau and all of its surveys and programs, including the American Community Survey (ACS).

To that end, The Census Project is launching an effort to raise the profile on an urgent issue that census stakeholders can amplify. This week, we began running advertisements on Twitter aimed at Congress and policymakers to draw attention to our recent report on the ACS, “America’s Data At Risk.”

Census Project members can help promote the campaign by either retweeting, through their own accounts, the ads (Ex.1, Ex. 2, Ex.3 and Ex. 4) when they appear in their feeds or using the ad copy to develop their own tweets illustrating how critical ACS data are to their own organizations’ missions.

The campaign will run through early July. Please contact Mary Jo or Howard if you have any questions or need assistance.
