Press Release

WASHINGTON, D.C. – At 2 p.m. ET / 12 p.m. MT today, Congresswoman Deb Haaland (NM-01), one of the first Native American women serving in Congress, will speak at the Indigenous People’s March at the Lincoln Memorial. The Indigenous People’s March serves as a platform to raise awareness about the issues facing men, women, and children in Indian Country. The march will be live streamed here.

Congresswoman Haaland has been an outspoken advocate for Native communities for years fighting for voting access and resources.

“The Indigenous Peoples March is a national platform to raise the issues that negatively impact our communities the most— voter suppression, the border wall, the missing and murdered, human trafficking and lack of resources—just to name a few,” said Congresswoman Deb Haaland. “For too long Native communities have been left out of the national/global conversation, and our men, women and children suffer because of it. As one of the first Native American women in Congress, I see it as my responsibility to educate my colleagues about the federal government’s trust responsibility and provide a voice to advocate for those who have historically not had a seat at the table to make a long-awaited change.”
