KWSO Calendar for Wed., Sep. 30, 2020

If you haven’t yet participated in the 2020 census – It’s not too late.   You can still do the census and you can call everyone you know and tell them to take the census too.  The census equals money, power, and representation. The more we are counted the louder our voice. If you haven’t already participated in the 2020 Census – do it now at my 2020 census dot gov.

If you need assistance doing your census there will be a help table set up at the Tribal Administration building all day today.  They will also have snacks and you can pick up a new Tribal Cares Act application.
