What is 20,000 Lives?

  • A group of community members committed to making Plumas County an even better place to live, learn, work, and play.
  • A collaborative network that addresses community needs.

How does 20,000 Lives address community needs?

  • 20,000 Lives participants come together in working groups that address the interests they are already working on.

  • The strength of 20,000 Lives is the ability to create workgroups that address common issues shared by others in the network.
