Support Local Businesses with #WeCountSD Video Challenge

SDVFP is part of The Peoples’ Count SD, a coalition of South Dakota nonprofits and individuals encouraging everyone to respond to the 2020 Census so that South Dakota can receive as much funding as possible for critical programs like free school lunch, Medicare/Medicaid, SNAP/WIC, road/highway repair, relief for emergencies like COVID-19, and more. Each person counted in SD brings $27,000 to our state over the next 10 years! We are shaping the next decade of our communities with this count.

So we want to hear why YOU are responding to the Census. Make a video telling us WHY filling out the Census matters to you and HOW you filled it out (and how easy it was). Post it to Facebook, Instagram, TikTok, or Twitter with the hashtag #WeCountSD. From April 6-20, one video out of every 50 unique videos uploaded will win a $100 gift certificate to the local South Dakota business of their choice. A maximum of 6 gift certificates will be awarded.

Eligibility to win:

  1. All languages welcome.
  2. Post with the hashtag #WeCountSD, AND tag @thepeoplescountSD (Facebook, Instagram, TikTok), and @peoplescountSD (Twitter) so we can find your post. Tag your friends and challenge them to participate too!
  3. Winners will be notified through social media, so make sure you post on a public account, or make your post public. Do NOT share any sensitive information like your address.
  4. Be creative, have fun (and fill out your Census form online at my2020census.gov or by phone 1-844-330-2020 — para español 1-844-468-2020).

Because everyone counts, let’s count everyone!


South Dakota Voices for Peace and South Dakota Voices for Justice are sister organizations working together on grassroots empowerment and building strategic allyship as well as countering top down legislated hate and fear-mongering against Muslims, immigrants and refugees in SD. Working on both ends of the social change continuum, we strive to live out our vision “to create a SD where the fabric is rich, diverse and inclusive.”

SD Voices for Peace is our educational and legal service arm of our work. SD Voices for Justice is our lobbying and advocacy arm.
