The Census Project developed a toolkit for grassroots supporters and allies of the project to enable them to educate their own senators and representatives about the 2020 Census and the American Community Survey (ACS). The toolkit offers information, resources and guidance for local stakeholder organizations who want to create a coalition in their area/state to help preserve a fair and accurate decennial census and a comprehensive ACS.
In March 2016 the Census Project co-sponsored a webinar on the toolkit featuring its primary author, Joan Naymark from Minnesotans for the American Community Survey (MACS). View the presentation:
