Getting out the Vote: Native Women's Perspectives on Building Civic Engagement
Tuesday, October 27, 2020, 1:30 PM until 3:00 PM
Registration is not Required
In this 100th anniversary year of the 19th Amendment we recognize that it did not grant all women the right to vote. Women of color, including Native American women, were excluded from the protections of the 19th Amendment.
Join this panel of Native American women for a discussion about the barriers to voting that continue to this day. Panelists will share their experiences and provide resources to help address barriers to voting in the 2020 election and beyond. Attendees will be able to submit questions.
Panel of Indigenous leaders:
- Lynnette Grey Bull, Northern Arapaho/Hunkpapa Lakota, US House candidate, WY At-Large and Founder & Director Not Our Native Daughters
- First Lady Nez, Navajo Nation
- Andi Clifford, Northern Arapaho, Wyoming State Representative
- Raven Pinto, Navajo Nation, B.A. Political Science, Colorado State University
- Savannah Romero (moderator), Eastern Shoshone, Partnerships & Programs Manager at IllumiNative.
This webinar series is part of an initiative to raise awareness of the 19th Amendment’s centennial and to “highlight stories of women who continue to shape the world” and is a an apolitical, non-partisan webinar focused on getting out the vote not about who to vote for or how to vote in this, or any, election.
