Voting In Native Country: Hurdles at Every Turn

There are 11 reservations and Indian communities in Minnesota but only one reservation has an on-site place to vote.  What's going n?  This seminar will navigate the hurdles which deter indigenous citizens, our native sisters and brothers, from voting.

Join us as we explore the voting barriers faced by on-reservation Native Americans and seek to understand the importance of advancing Native voting rights across Indian Country in the US and Minnesota.

Speakers:
•  OJ Semans – Co-Executive Director of Four Directions Vote and member of the Rosebud Sioux Tribe in South Dakota
•  Bret Healy – Attorney for Four Directions Vote
•  Mike Simpkins – Coordinator of the 2020 Voter Registration Drive at Red Lake Reservation and member of the Red Lake Tribe in Minnesota

Participate in this two part series for just $10.
Part one: Friday, June 17, 7-9 p.m.: Where Are My Sisters? Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women

Cost: $10 for both seminars; scholarships available
