COVID-19 Impact Survey: Complete This Confidential Questionnaire to Help Measure the Pandemic’s Local Impact
Posted by Liat Stilman on 03/05/2021 @ 02:42 PM
The unprecedented nature and rapid spread of COVID-19 has exposed critical risks to our local economy as well as our systems of health care and education.
As we approach the 12-month mark of this prolonged crisis, our partners at the United Way of Miami-Dade are conducting a Pandemic Impact Survey to measure how Miami-Dade households have been affected by the pandemic including the financial burden on families in our community. The survey aims to collect responses from a wide range of households, income levels, as well as, small business owners.
Your confidential participation, which will take no more than 10-15 minutes, is critical to understanding COVID’s impact to date as well as help inform long-term recovery efforts. A preliminary report will be published this summer.
Take the survey HERE.

ABOUT THE SPEAKER
Deborah E. Lipstadt is the author of many highly regarded books on the subject of the Holocaust and antisemitism, including her most recent work, Antisemitism Here and Now, which won the 2019 National Jewish Book Award. Her book History on Trial: My Day in Court with a Holocaust Denier (2006) recounted her experience of being sued for libel by David Irving, a UK Holocaust denier. Lipstadt’s victory in this seminal court case is regarded as having “done for the new century what the Nuremberg tribunals or the Eichmann trial did for earlier generations.” The book was made into the movie ‘Denial’ starring Rachel Weisz and Tom Wilkenson with screenplay by David Hare. It was nominated for a BAFTA award as one of the best British films of the year. Lipstadt was appointed to the United States Holocaust Memorial Council by Presidents Clinton and Obama, and she was asked by President George W. Bush to represent the White House at the 60th anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz.
