Greetings from the Buddhist Council of New York. This is Rev.Dr. TK Nakagaki, 2020 Census Outreach Coordinator for NYC Buddhist community, representing the Buddhist Council of New York.

An invitation to fill out the 2020 Census has been sent out to all New York City households on March 12th, 2020. I hope that you have already received yours. 

It is time for ALL people who live in the US to fill out the 2020 Census!!! The Buddhist Council of New York has been actively involved to reach out Buddhist communities in New York City to encourage people to participate in the US Census.

Because of the recent coronavirus outbreak, many of us need to stay home. We would like to encourage all Buddhist community members to use this time to fill out the census. It is of critical importance for Buddhists to take part in the census to increase our visibility and make our voices heard as an important part of New York City.
