  • Alaska Counts 2020 Census We’re at the tail end of the Census — just one week left to be counted! Wednesday, September 30 is the final deadline. We need your help to encourage fellow Alaskans to respond to the census at by calling 1-844-330-2020, or by returning a mail-in form they may have received. We can still work hard to boost the self-response rate in this final push!

    We know Alaskans are most likely to be counted if they hear from trusted voices about the Census and how important it is. Help us remind Alaska that the Census is critical for our future: being counted is an opportunity to guarantee the resources we need to rebuild our economy, protect public health, and ensure civil rights!

    Assuming that you have already responded to the Census (if you haven’t, get on that!), your next challenge is to encourage neighbors, family, friends, and coworkers to respond at or 1-844-330-2020. We have many graphics and resources you can share on social media at, or you can use the graphics at the bottom of this email.

    You know your community best.

    Who will you encourage to fill out the census in your neck of the woods?

    This is our last chance. We need all hands on deck. Pass along this link: and this phone number: 1-844-330-2020 when you get in touch with fellow Alaskans, whether they’re across the street or across the state.

    Thanks for all your help. We couldn’t do it without you.
