May 1-3: 2020 Digital Action Weekend

The U.S. Census Bureau hosted Digital Weekend of Action on May 1-3. While current times are unprecedented, they also present an opportunity to reach people digitally across the nation.

2020 Census partners, influencers, community leaders and trusted voices were encouraged to use their social media accounts to help us spread the word: It’s not too late to respond to the 2020 Census. Once you've responded, encourage your family, friends, and neighbors to complete the census, too. Responding now will minimize the need for census takers to go out into communities to follow up.

Participation included:

  • Posting content on social media showing your commitment to responding to the 2020 Census. Using customized content or grabbing graphics and sample posts from our Resource Guide.
  • Sharing and liking posts from our FacebookTwitter, and Instagram accounts with your stakeholders, friends and family for the most current information on 2020 Census operations.
  • Visiting the 2020 Census Social Hub for customizable graphics to share.
  • Checking out our Response Rate Map and Rankings Dashboard to see how your town is doing. The map is updated every afternoon to reflect the self-response rate of the country and each state, county, city, census tract, congressional district and tribal area. .
  • Using the hashtags #2020Census and #Censo2020 when posting on your social platforms.
