A Conversation on Voting Rights and Indian Country
Categories: Civil Rights (Voting Rights, Juries, Census)
In this first-of-its-kind online conversation, NARF legal experts Natalie Landreth (Chickasaw) and Jacqueline De León (Isleta Pueblo) discuss the historic struggles of Native people to vote, the legal fights to access the ballot and be represented, and why voices for racial justice are critical to our democracy.
We discuss our new report Obstacles at Every Turn: Barriers to Political Participation Faced by Native American Voters, which provides detailed evidence of how Native people face obstacles at every turn in the electoral process: from registering to vote, to casting votes, to having votes counted.
