As the Census deadline approaches, join Beverly Harry and representatives from the Reno-Sparks Indian Colony to discuss critical census work to provide needed funding for the next ten years. We will look at the amount of access the last Census brought and what areas we really need to explore to provide the quality of life to our reservations. Catch us live on our PLAN Facebook page Tuesday, September 29th, at 3:30pm.
