Michigan 2020 census campaign in urgent need for virtual volunteers
Because of the coronavirus outbreak, all 2020 census field operations were suspended, and that has significantly delayed our effort to ensure all Michiganders are going to be counted in 2020, said Michigan Statewide Census Director Kerry Ebersole Singh. We have an immediate, urgent need for volunteers who are willing to commit to making phone calls from home using a virtual phone bank and reminding their fellow Michiganders to complete the census.The request for virtual phone bank volunteers extends to every region of the state. We make the experience of learning how to be a census virtual phone bank volunteer as easy, understandable and hassle-free as possible, said Michigan Statewide Census Deputy Director Dichondra Johnson, who is coordinating the states Be Counted phone bank program. The push to recruit virtual phone bank volunteers is especially great in cities like Detroit and Flint. The census matters now more than ever, especially given the circumstances, said Detroit 2020 Census Campaign Executive Director Victoria Kovari.
