Nonprofit Quarterly

Nebraska will soon celebrate Indigenous Peoples' Day.  Under a new law that will take effect on November 13th, Indigenous Peoples' Day will be celebrated along with Columbus Day starting in 2021.  The bill's sponsor, State Senator Patty Pansing Brooks, tells WOWT it is important to recognize indigenous people for the impact in their communities.
