WAUSAU, Wisc. — Today at 10:00 AM CT, 7th congressional district special election candidate Tricia Zunker will hold a video conference roundtable with palliative care worker Bruce Grau, small business owner Danielle Johnson, and caretaker and gig economy worker Sandi Kelch, to discuss how the coronavirus is impacting their lives.
President Trump has been slow to respond to the crisis, refusing to acknowledge the severity of it, spreading falsehoods, and refusing to fully mobilize the federal government in a timely manner. He has been placated by politicians like Tom Tiffany, who has been playing politics with the issue rather than supporting policies that will help Wisconsinites in the 7th congressional district.
WHAT: A video conference roundtable highlighting President Trump’s and Tom Tiffany’s inadequate response to the coronavirus crisis.
WHO: Tricia Zunker, 7th Congressional District Special Election Candidate
Bruce Grau, Palliative Care Worker
Danielle Johnson, DVM, Small Business Owner
Sandi Kelch, Caretaker and gig economy worker
WHEN: TODAY, March 19, 10:00 a.m - CDT

12 years of Native News
This month, we celebrate our 12th year of delivering Native News to readers throughout Indian Country and beyond. For the past dozen years, we’ve covered the most important news stories that are usually overlooked by other media. From the protests at Standing Rock and the rise of the American Indian Movement (AIM), to the ongoing epidemic of Murdered and Missing Indigenous People (MMIP) and the past-due reckoning related to assimilation, cultural genocide and Indian Boarding Schools.
Our news is free for everyone to read, but it is not free to produce. That’s why we’re asking you to make a donation this month to help support our efforts. Any contribution — big or small — helps. If you’re in a position to do so, we ask you to consider making a recurring donation of $12 per month to help us remain a force for change in Indian Country and to tell the stories that are so often ignored, erased or overlooked.
