Friends and Family Toolkit: the NJ Friends and Family Census Outreach Project. It’s very basic and built on the notion of a phone tree. And it’s easily done from the comfort of your home. How does it work? – Ask at least five (5) friends, neighbors or family members to fill out their Census form. And then ask those who agree to call 5 of their friends and family members. And so on, and so on. The concept is in keeping with the idea that trusted voices will be the ones to convince others to fill out the Census. And who is more trusted than friends, neighbors or family members?riends, neighbors or family members?
