ONLINE—Voting Rights for Indigenous Populations

September 28 @ 4:00 pm5:00 pm

Despite rights granted by the Indian Citizenship Act of 1924, many native people remain excluded from democratic processes. We explore the barriers facing native voters and seekers of public office, including landmark legal battles, literacy laws, and voter ID requirements. What electoral issues are of concern to native communities in California today? 

Join speakers Christina Snider, California Tribal Affairs Secretary, and Jordan James Harvill, a voting specialist from Advance Native Political Leadership, on Zoom on September 28 at 4pm for Voting Rights for Indigenous Populations. To register, use the link below.
