IMPORTANT: The 2020 Census determines the amount of federal funds New York will receive for the next 10 years!
NYC is at risk of losing BILLIONS of dollars (that's BILLIONS with a "B") for the next 10 years. Federal funds that are used for hospitals, medicines, vaccines, schools, and other vital services would be severely limited. Why? Because New Yorkers’ response to the Census is very low (48%). To make matters worse we could also lose 2 Congressional seats. It's vital that we do our part. Spread the message to friends and family. Fill out the Census TODAY!

CENSUS PHONE-BANKING FOR MIDTOWN
This is so important. We are behind. We should be ahead!
As of today, Manhattan’s overall self-response rate is only 54%.
Midtown Manhattan is at 38.4%. (For reference, in 2010 it was 62%)
Hell’s Kitchen is at 52.5%. (For reference, in 2010 it was 66%)
We need to get counted to be allotted more representation and funds! This is even more important now that the city needs rebuilding. We can do better! All you need is a phone, a tablet, or computer to phone-bank.
