UNM Virtual Block Party

#UNMCENSUS2020 is the university’s initiative to confirm all students, faculty and staff are counted.  To help raise awareness of student’s roles in the 2020 Census, the UNM Complete Count Committee is inviting the campus community to a virtual block party on YouTube. The event is scheduled for Wed. April 15, 2020 at 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. and will include:

  • Music
  • Free Raffled prizes
  • Conversations with Branch Campuses, Central New Mexico Community College (CNM) and Community Partners
  • Information on voter registration
  • Poetry performances and Visual Art
  • Video contest

In order to be entered in the FREE raffle, participants must take and upload a screen shot of their completed commitment card indicating that they are pledging to speak to 5-10 participants about the urgency of a complete count for New Mexico and share the card on their social media accounts. This is an effort to ensure people are spreading the word about their involvement and encourage others to take part in the count. Thank you for being our trusted messengers!
