Non-Profi Group Trying To Get Indigenous People Counted In Census

The census deadline is just seven days away, and a Santa Maria non-profit is reaching out to indigenous communities in the area. Mix-teco Indigena Community Organizing Project is reaching out to farmworkers from Oaxaca, Mexico who don’t speak English or Spanish so they can be counted before the September 30th deadline. An undercount in population could mean less money for the city for roads, healthcare and other services.
