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

You’re reading the first draft of history.
November is Native American Heritage Month in the United States. We feel like every month — and every day — is a reason for celebrating Native Americans and our heritage. That’s what we try to do here at Native News Online, with stories each day that celebrate, inform and uplift American Indian and Alaska Native people. Over the past year or so, we have been especially busy with three important reporting projects that are having an impact across Indian Country:
- Indian Boarding Schools. We’ve reported and published more than 150 stories and special live stream video events to help shine a light on the dark era of boarding schools — and help create momentum for change.
- Native Health Desk. Launched in January, this reporting initiative was created to heighten awareness of Native American health inequities and spotlight pockets of progress in Indian Country. So far we’ve reported and published nearly 120 stories and launched a monthly health newsletter that reaches more than 23,000 readers.
- Native Bidaske. In March, we launched this live stream interview program to highlight the work of Native Americans who are making news and leading change in Indian Country. We have hosted guests from the federal government and Native rights advocates as well as Indigenous actors, comedians, journalists and models.
We hope you will join us in celebrating Native American heritage and history this November and invite you to consider the old adage that “Journalism is the first draft of history.” If you appreciate the voice Native News Online gives to Native American people, we hope you will support our work with a donation so we can build our newsroom and continue to amplify Native voices and Native perspectives.
Any contribution — big or small — helps us remain a force for change in Indian Country and continue telling the stories that are so often ignored, erased or overlooked. Most often, our donors make a one-time gift of $20 or more, while many choose to make a recurring monthly donation of $5 or $10. Whatever you can do, it helps fund our Indigenous-led newsroom and our ability to cover Native news.
