SMALL BUSINESS OWNERS, FREELANCERS, AND GIG WORKERS IN WINDSOR TERRACE AND SUNSET PARK: A SURVEY ABOUT THE IMPACT OF THE PANDEMIC


Community Board 7 understands that small business owners, freelancers, and gig workers in Windsor Terrace and Sunset Park have been negatively impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. CB 7 is interested in learning how they've been affected and what needs to be done to help them recover.
Dear Neighbor:
As we continue to figure out how we move forward in unprecedented times, with so many uncertainties ahead of us, Community Board 7/Brooklyn is seeking your help in resolving problems and eliminating barriers to recovery and success for our entire community.

One area we are choosing to focus on is the impact the shutdown and economic crisis has had on our local businesses and their employees. We are hopeful that we can reach out to all of the businesses in our district so we can get a greater understanding of their issues and needs as we advocate for better policies for our neighborhood’s recovery.
 
This is where you can help. We are certainly reaching out through business organizations, social media and email, but we do not have the ability to reach everyone on our own.

So we are asking you to help with outreach to your local businesses, freelance and gig workers, people who have their own businesses, any business that you can think of, to ask them to complete a brief survey to help us better understand their issues and concerns.
 
Please share the following link with every business you can in our district. Currently, it is available in English and Spanish, but we hope to have it in Chinese soon.

Additionally, paper surveys will also be available next week through the office, but our preference is email.

If you or a business owner have any questions, please contact us at bk07@cb.nyc.gov
 
Sincerely,
Cesar Zuniga
