The City of Greeley is working with volunteers from local communities and organizations to build a homegrown 2020 Census effort. The goal of this community-led campaign is to inform our residents about the importance of this effort, while working to achieve a complete and accurate count. We also built a local branding toolkit that was both representative and responsive to our communities needs.
In working with residents and members of our local Complete Count Committee, we found that representation is important to our local residents, and that simply using the word "counting" may make our residents feel like numbers, rather than residents of our community that matter.
Federal census messaging uses the tagline "Shape Your Future." Statewide census messaging uses the tagline "Everyone Counts in Colorado." The local messaging we created takes engagement a step further to share that in our communities "We Count. We Matter."
Usable branding documentation and branding information are available through the linked documents shared below. Chris Garcia from the City of Greeley is available to answer your questions or share additional insight into how materials were created. Local Branding Guidelines:
