MESSAGE FROM CITY HALL

Only working together can we ensure investment happens in our vulnerable communities. NYC needs our help in order to build a more equitable and resilient future for all. 

CITY HALL  invites Hostos students, faculty, and alumni to NYC@Home, a Virtual Census Create-A-Thon  hosted by New York Counts 2020 on Saturday June 20th from 1pm-4pm.

In partnership with New York Counts 2020, this event aims to produce community-driven Census outreach materials that can be distributed by and for the community when reaching out to multi-generational or non-traditional (aka doubled-up) households across New York City. 
 
Consider participating in the Virtual Create-A-Thon by sending some of your staff members as well as organizing your community members to join. Already involved in making NYC@Home happen are ABNY, Brooklyn Public Library, Citizens’ Committee for Children of New York, New York Branch NAACP, NYIC, and Queens Public Library. Our hope is that this event connects to your existing or future Census-related initiatives, and that together our efforts can be amplified.
 
For this event, we are seeking: 

·         Organizers, advocates, content creators passionate about getting NYC counted

·         Tech-savvy creatives that can join an online platform, have a laptop, camera, or other tools for creating digital content

·         Teens, young people, and anyone who has ideas and the capacity to step up for their community

Space is limited - for additional information  http://nyc-at-home.eventbrite.com/
