As we enter primary elections, a pivotal voting bloc of people is mobilizing to shape the future of our country. Join us in a discussion about how Indigenous communities are challenging centuries of voter oppression – and how to apply these lessons to achieve justice for all marginalized people.

Native communities face significant barriers to the ballot box that are often overlooked in mainstream conversations about voting rights. Despite a lack of resources and institutional support, Indigenous people are getting out the vote and increasing Native voice both on and off reservations across the country.

Hear from a panel of Indigenous activists to learn how you can support voting access for Native people and leverage their experiences into a collective fight for the ballot box for all who have been disenfranchised from shaping public policy.


ABOUT: Wellbeing Blueprint

https://wellbeingblueprint.org/about/#forward

The Wellbeing Blueprint took shape in 2020 when a group of changemakers came together to turn a crisis into a turning point.

For generations, marginalized communities responding to injustice had been sidelined, under-resourced or ignored. Then COVID-19 and the murder of George Floyd shook the nation to its core. A long-overdue reckoning began taking place as more people became aware of the inequities and atrocities that communities had been organizing around for decades.

We realized that now is the closest we’ll get in our lifetime to meaningfully rethinking and rebuilding our systems from the ground up. The Wellbeing Blueprint is our community, our roadmap and our movement to do just that.
