Your advocacy matters! Montana’s senators heard your call and they have both agreed to co-sponsor the 2020 Census Deadlines Extension Act!

Just four days ago we asked you to join us in requesting that Montana’s senators continue their leadership and #SavetheCensus by supporting the bipartisan 2020 Census Deadline Extensions Act. Your response was overwhelming and we added over 130 organizations to the letter within 72 hours.

We are thrilled to tell you that as of this morning, both Senator Daines and Senator Tester are now co-sponsoring the bill. Thank you for your part in this.

Please join us in thanking the senators by contacting their offices:
Senator Daines
Senator Tester

We’ll keep working with you to make sure the US Census Bureau finishes its job of counting every household in the state. But until we hear differently, the current deadline for completing the census is just 6 short days away and we need every single Montanan to be counted. Wondering what else you can do to help?

  • Check out our census giveaway on Instagram. Tag at least 5 people and be entered to win a $500 gift card AND a $1500 donation to the Montana nonprofit of your choice!
  • Print, post, or share this flyer on social media. Make it available in waiting rooms, or send it with client or member mailings.
  • Send an email alert to your whole contact list and remind them how vital the census is to our communities! Census data determines funding for more than 300 federal programs we all benefit from every year.
  • Share these digital files with anyone you know in these low-response counties!

Montana still has a lot of work to do to ensure a complete census count. But today, we wish to celebrate your efforts and thank you for always standing ready to support our state. Together, we are making a difference!
