Here are a few time-sensitive updates we wanted to share with you before our next newsletter...
Long Beach Commission on Women and Girls' Community Survey
Did you know... The Commission on Women and Girls' Community Survey is LIVE!

The City of Long Beach invites women and girls to help shape the mission of the Long Beach Commission for Women and Girls (LBCWG) by completing a survey, available now through Monday, Dec. 19, 2022.

Information collected through the survey will help inform the development of the City’s first-of-its-kind commission specifically designed for women and girls, which will provide a space for specific education, outreach and advocacy for the advancement and equity of all women and girls.

The survey is available in English, Spanish, Khmer and Tagalog and can be accessed online and in person.

Those without computer or smart phone access can visit a public computer lab at any open Long Beach Public Library (LBPL) location. Paper surveys are also available at LBPL locations and at the following Long Beach park community centers: Houghton, Chavez, McBride, El Dorado, Admiral Kidd Park, Pan American Park Gym, Expo Center Senior Program, Homeland/MacArthur, Long Beach Senior Center, Bixby Park and King Park.

Community members who complete the survey will be eligible to receive an incentive, while supplies last.
LGBTQ Cultural District Survey
City of Long Beach Staff are soliciting feedback to create a community vision for an LGBTQ+ Cultural District recognizing and supporting the LGBTQ+ community located along the Broadway corridor. This area on Broadway running between Alamitos and Junipero Avenues has long been home to a strong and active LGBTQ+ community.

Fill out this survey to make your voice heard and provide input on the Long Beach LGBTQ+ Cultural District! Contact with any questions, comments, or ideas.
