The outcome of the Census can and will impact your community. Make sure you count.

Every ten years, the United States Census Bureau conducts a sweeping survey of all U.S. households. The crucial demographic data documented in the survey has a far-reaching impact on how the federal government distributes resources to our communities, ranging from Medicaid and food stamp funding to infrastructure investment and even the size of your state’s congressional delegation.

Take five minutes today to do your part and fill out the 2020 Census online, over the phone or by mail using the information on the postcard you should have received in your mailbox by April 1. Visit my2020census.gov for more information on how to fill out the short form with big implications.

Hospitals, employees seeking protective equipment donations

Medical workers union members are calling upon the public to help with the drastic shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE) in local hospitals.

The Office and Professional Employees International Union Local 40 is accepting donations of PPEs, such as unused N95 masks, and other unused masks, protective eye wear/safety goggles, and gowns that will be distributed to the medical staff it represents at local respective hospitals who are running out.

Use the Defense Production Act to Protect Frontline Professionals and Those They Care For

Dear Lawmakers,

Healthcare workers and patients don’t have the proper CDC recommended safety equipment to protect us from COVID-19. We care for patients who are infected with the COVID-19 virus every day, often with inadequate protective equipment, masks that have been reused for days or no protective equipment at all. This is not only a danger to healthcare professionals working on the front lines, but a danger to patients and their families both with and without the virus.
