IcountNM Toolkits & Resources
2020 Census Toolkit
This toolkit contains resources for anyone conducting census outreach and awareness efforts in the state. These materials are intended for community organizers, complete count committees, nonprofits, engaged businesses, and others to use to activate their community to complete their census.
We partnered with NM Counts 2020 to create a nonprofit-specific toolkit with the most commonly requested outreach materials. Any nonprofit or CBO is welcome to use these promote the 2020 Census.
