Census Selfie Campaign

If you are on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or another social media platform, YOU are a trusted messenger among your friends, family, and other followers. Let’s use our platforms to help encourage our peers to participate in the Census! 

Please find a toolkit below of different graphics you can download and post, along with sample captions and selfie ideas. We encourage you all to pair a selfie or personal picture of your own with these graphics and talking points – and then tag a friend to keep it going! We encourage you all to be creative and have fun with these. You do not need to keep our captions, but feel free to copy and paste if it resonates with you!
