WASHINGTON – On Saturday, Native Americans in Philanthropy (NAP) joined the national Women’s March on Washington as part of the Indigenous Women Rise collective. The collective is comprised of: Advance Native Political Leadership, NAP, Native Voice Network, Native Voices Rising, National Indian Women’s Resource Center, UltraViolet, The Continental Network of Indigenous Women of the Americas, North American Region, Indigenous Environmental Network, and other key organizations working to advance Indigenous Peoples issues and rights.
Many others joined in support online and walked in solidarity in D.C. and in 20 cities at sister marches across the country. Indigenous Women Rise even had a contingent in Peru representing at the Women’s March there.
