March is Women’s History Month! ❤️✨We are grateful for this time set aside so we can honor the women in our lives.

Many women in our communities, both from the past and present, have played a vital and necessary role in creating a more just and understanding world. And now we look to inspire the leaders of the future!

Here’s to the mothers, aunties, sisters, friends, and ancestors! We wouldn’t be in the place we are today without their incredible dedication.

For the final day of Black History Month, we want to bring attention to a moment in recent history with the decision of the Allen v. Milligan Supreme Court decision. 🗳️✨

On June 8, 2023, the Supreme Court ruled that Alabama’s new congressional district map violated the Voting Rights Act by diluting the votes of Black residents.

Basically, Alabama was attempting to draw up a congressional map that ‘packed’ the state’s Black population into one district. This illegal tactic is one that unfortunately has been utilized many times before, in hopes to dilute the power of the Black vote.

Evan Milligan, whose name is used in the case name, and is no stranger to grassroots organizing. His start came as a teenager during the Civil Rights Movement and now he is the executive director of Alabama Forward: an Alabama-based civic engagement network committed to bringing together nonpartisan organizations to work together in building power around progressive civic issues and movement towards greater freedom.

We are grateful for those who fight to protect democracy and continue to defend voting rights. As Mr. Milligan was quoted in a write up from the Southern Poverty Law Center, “We need democracy in order for diversity to work.”

51 years ago, a movement which was led by Oglala Lakota organizers and the American Indian Movement took place at the site of the 1890 Wounded Knee Massacre. 

Inspired by the Civil Rights Movement, they wanted to bring attention to the mistreatment and purposeful assimilation of Native communities. Those involved came with specific demands, including that the United States respect and uphold their side of treaty agreements that were promised to sovereign Native nations. 

The legacy of this occupation continues to motivate our work more than half a century later.
🪶✨ Last week, we held our first National Training of 2024! 29 participants from 24 Native grassroots and Tribal organizations joined us in Federal Way, Washington. 

These trainings are part of our larger mission of eliminating the barriers that Indigenous people face when voting, empowering grassroots movements with the strategic goal of Native self-determination, and supporting Indigenous political leadership at all levels.

We are so grateful to all who made this first National Training possible through donations and to all the participants who are working on the ground to further Native self-determination and sovereignty.
Thinking of Nex, who left this world too soon, and their family. ❤️🪶

#repost from @protectsacred: Nex Benedict (Choctaw descent), a 16 year old non-binary high school student, was taken too soon from us earth side. Nex was brutally assaulted by classmates in the bathroom and the next day, declared dead at the hospital. Our queer, non-binary, and LGBTQ2S+ Native youth deserve to flourish as their true selves and to one day become respected elders.

“I was so proud of Nex. They were going some place, they were so free.” - Nex’s grandmother Sue.

We send all our prayers and deepest condolences to Nex’s loved ones during this time.

We understand this tragedy can be triggering, reach out to the following organizations for support:
@trevorproject : call 866-488-7386 or text 678-678 (Available 24/7; leading suicide prevention organization for LGBTQ+ young people)
