Making Sense of the Census
By Julie Menin, Director of NYC
Every day at 7:00 pm, New York
City comes together to show our
thanks to the health care workers
caring for our neighbors as we fight
COVID-19. And from May 6 to May 12,
people across the country will be celebrating
these frontline workers during
National Nurses Week.
And right after we take the time
to cheer our frontline workers, we
can also do our part to support them
for years to come by taking the 2020
The census is how NYC gets the
funding we need for our hospitals,
health care, emergency services,
schools, housing, senior centers, and
countless other public programs for
the next ten years. And when more of
us are counted, we get more funding.
So to keep frontline healthcare
workers fully resourced — not just
through the duration of this pandemic,
but for the next decade — every
New Yorker needs to be counted.
Luckily, it’s never been easier. You
can go online to my2020census.gov
or call 1-844-330-2020 right now and
answer 10 simple questions in just 5
minutes. Your information is 100%
confidential and protected by law.
Nurses and essential workers are
counting on us now more than ever to
fill out the census. As you get ready to
make some noise tonight, take a few
moments to give back by making sure
your household is counted.
Let’s clap for our nurses today and
fill out the census to support them
“Making Sense of the Census” is a
weekly column from Julie Menin, Director
of NYC Census 2020. Every week
we will be publishing pieces from Julie
and guest authors laying out the facts
and answering tough questions about
this year’s census. Fill out the census
now at my2020census.gov.
The Greater Whitestone Taxpayers

all the nurses who work hard,
devoting endless hours to care for all
of us. Not only now during this time
of the COVID-19 virus, but each and
every day. Nurses are true angels
and we are forever grateful.
