Hear from Judith LeBlanc of Native Organizers Alliance, Crystal Echo Hawk of IllumiNative, Aimee Allison from She The People, Rep. Deb Haaland, Ramona Emerson of Reel Indian Pictures, and Cordelia Falls Down of the Crow Tribe. 

RSVP here as we discuss trailblazing, history-making candidates, on their journey from organizing to governing, and the community of organizers and activists who work day in and day out to make democracy work for all of us.

Watch the short featurette below from And She Could Be Next, which centers the story of Representative Deb Haaland, the first Native American woman to be elected to Congress. Executive produced by Ava DuVernay, directed by Grace Lee and Marjan Safinia, and produced by Jyoti Sarda.

“Our communities have untapped power because of our history, our ancestors—we must use it in many ways from the streets to the ballot box. Exercising our grassroots political power is crucial to rebuilding what we’ve lost and preparing the future for the next seven generations.”

— Crystal Echo Hawk, IllumiNative Executive Director
