We thought you might like to see the survey results, so here they are. The survey was available in two versions: English and Spanish. We had 15 responses on the Spanish-language survey, and 96 responses on the English-language survey.

Please click below to explore the survey results in English or Spanish on the SurveyMonkey website. Results are presented separately for each version of the survey:
