2010 Census Fill In Our Future Campaign

Friday, March 26, 2010

Definitely important to get involved and get counted.

The 2010 Census deadline is approaching, and as you know, it is critical to have the entire Asian American community participate. An accurate count can help us receive our share of over $400 billion in annual federal funds for services our community needs.

Unfortunately, past decades have shown that Asian Americans are among the groups most likely to discard their Census forms. In an effort to gather the most accurate count of our community for this year's Census, we would like to request your assistance, as an influential Asian American blogger, in raising awareness on this issue.

Fill In Our Future is a campaign created by AAPI Action to promote and encourage the participation of the Asian American community in the 2010 Census. Our website, fillinourfuture.org, features frequently asked Census questions, in-language resources (in over 24 Asian languages), informational brochures, sample Census forms, in-language assistance guides, celebrity and community leader PSA's (Public Service Announcements) and monthly contests and giveaways. The larger campaign also includes media and community outreach, workshops, a speaker's bureau and training seminars.
