Local businesses struck by coronavirus tell their stories via DemBiz

As businesses in our region stagger under the impact of coronavirus, the Democratic Business Council of Northern Virginia (“DemBiz”) has launched a series of short video interviews with business owners to share their experiences of dealing with the pandemic.

The series, called “DemBiz Briefs,” looks into what is actually happening on the ground, how businesses are coping, what their most pressing needs are, and how they plan to get back to normalcy when possible.

Interviews last about 10-15 minutes and are conducted via Zoom. You can see a recent DemBiz Brief with Alexandria business owner Rob Krupicka here.
