Get Involved

Want to know how you or your organization can support a fair and accurate 2020 Census? We offer some ways to get involved below.

OC Census Community Table

Join the OC Census Community Table, a cross-sector, multi-sector hub for Census information, knowledge and resources. As of September 2019, more than 200 local Census stakeholders are part of the Table. Email Sarah Middleton at sarah.middleton@missionup.co for more information or to sign up.


Quarterly Census Expo

Plan to attend the next Quarterly Census Expo. Hosted by Charitable Ventures, the Orange County/Region 9 Administrative CBO (ACBO), and the OC Census Community Table, the Expo is the place to share Census information and knowledge, build strong partnerships and collaboration between trusted leaders in the community, and enhance a county-wide coordinated outreach effort.

The first Quarterly Census Expo took place June 19, 2019 at the Delhi Center in Santa Ana, and more than 180 community members attended. Expo speakers, including representatives from Charitable Ventures, the County of Orange, the State of California, and the U.S. Census Bureau, shared their respective, non-duplicative plans for education and outreach in Orange County.

The second Quarterly Census Expo is taking place September 19, 2019. There’s still time to register here.


QAC or QAK

Set up a QAC or QAK. A what or what?! QAC is Questionnaire Assistance Center and QAK is Questionnaire Action Kiosk. And we’re hopeful that organizations up and down Orange County will set up these Centers and Kiosks to support OC residents in completing their Census forms.

Census Training

Participate in an upcoming Census training. In Orange County, NALEO, Asian Americans Advancing Justice, and the OC Civic Engagement Table will be conducting Census trainings for interested individuals and organizations. Get your staff trained, so they can speak accurately about the Census and combat mis- and dis-information. Training will begin Fall 2019, and the schedule will be posted to this page once solidified.

Sample 2020 Census Form

Pass it on! A sample copy of the 2020 Census form, that is. You can view the sample of the paper questionnaire that will be used during the 2020 Census here. This version excludes some features that will be made available to households starting in March 2020, such as the URL for online response and the contact information for phone response.
