United Way of Northern Nevada and the Sierra’s (UWNNS) wants to hear from the communities we serve. UWNNS's Listening Tour will ask and listen to community members throughout different northern Nevada counties. Information collected will be used to inform and guide future work. The two ways to participate are through an online survey and a series of community conversations.
Community Conversations will invite community members, leaders, non-profit partners, and activists to join us in gathering a collective perspective of our community. Anyone can attend. During the one-hour long session, we will ask participants to share what they believe are the most pressing, or significant, issues facing their community. Attendance is FREE, but please RSVP to help us prepare for your participation.
If you are not able to attend a Community Conversation, we have an online survey available at www.uwnns.org/survey for anyone in northern Nevada to take that also asks what you consider to be the top community issues and for feedback about our current focus on early childhood literacy. The survey is confidential, does not ask for names, and takes about 5 minutes to complete.
All information collected during the 2019 Listening Tour will be summarized and shared with the public in the fall.
