About ABNY Census 2020 Pop-UP Public Relations Agency

Community-based organizations (CBOs) are the most trusted institutions in neighborhoods across the city and state. Individuals often turn to these organizations first for critical services and information, and for help in times of need.

Ensuring that all communities across New York City – especially underserved ones – are counted in the 2020 Census is crucial to protecting the federal, state, and city resources CBOs receive to serve their communities. That is why ABNY is making sure that CBOs conducting Census outreach are equipped with the tools and support needed to effectively communicate why participating in the 2020 Census is crucial to their success.To learn more about ABNY Census Pop-Up Public Relations Agency, please visit here or email CensusPRAgency@abny.org.
