#GivingTuesdayNow is May 5, 2020
During crisis, it is essential to be vigilant against actions that will restrict our civil liberties or sacrifice our most vulnerable communities through short-sightedness or a desire for expedient action.
Since the pandemic’s onset, we have been incredibly busy working for tribes and Native communities affected by the pandemic. Protecting voting rights for people who live on reservations and can’t receive ballots by mail, advocating for Native communities who stand no chance of being counted without US Census outreach, fighting to protect the Congressional funding intended for federally recognized tribes, and fighting tooth and nail to keep profitable but unnecessary “man camps,” (with their crowded conditions and transient populations ripe for outbreaks) away from vulnerable rural Native communities.
Be a part of #GivingTuesdayNow and help tribes who are fighting to keep their lands and peoples safe.
Ways you can help:
- Raise awareness about the ongoing fight to defend Indian Country. Share our stories on social media and let people know about the need to stand strong right now.

- Host a fundraiser and invite your friends to be a part of #GivingTuesdayNow.
