COVID-19 SURVEY 

The last few months have been challenging for New York’s workers as we navigate through the COVID-19 pandemic and the re-opening phases. We want to hear from you.

DC 37 has partnered with @NYCOSH to survey our members for a more detailed look at how the pandemic impacted you and your family, what resources you relied on and which ones you would have found helpful. All responses are completely anonymous. 

Please help us by completing this quick and important study that takes less than 10 minutes by SEPT. 18, here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/FN58YFL

YOUR CENSUS 2020 RESPONSE SAVES JOBS AND SERVICES

DC 37 needs your help in fighting for our city’s future. With the Trump administration’s decision to end the 2020 Census count on Sept. 30, undercounting New York City could cause us to lose billions in federal dollars, resulting in severe cuts to vital city services, important community programs and even massive layoffs of public workers. Eliminate the need for person-to-person contact by completing your 2020 Census at my2020Census.gov online or on your smartphone, or by  calling 1-844-330-2020. 

If you complete your Census online or by phone with your Census ID, no Census workers will not come to your door. Find out how your community is doing so far, visit https://2020census.gov/en/response-rates.html

Please help spread the word by volunteering with the DC 37 phonebank team at https://bit.ly/3fM6A97 Do your part to protect our city’s future!
