Join us on Tuesday, September 28 at 5:00pm ET for a Study Group with IOP Resident Fellow Ashley Allison

The Biggest Coalition Ever - Leave No Community Out 
When COVID-19 emerged, Indigenous communities were among the hardest hit communities and yet in 2020, they also had historic turnout in many battleground states (AZ, WI, MI, and GA), despite aggressive voter suppression efforts. The Native community is an important member of the coalition for civil rights but not always a focus for political campaigns. This study session will explore the various lessons learned over the last two years on how to build authentic coalitions with communities with different cultural and government structures.

Ashley will be joined by Judith LeBlanc, Director, Native Organizing Alliance.
