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

Do you appreciate a Native perspective on the news? 

For the past decade-plus, we’ve covered the important Indigenous stories that are often overlooked by other media. From the protests at Standing Rock and the toppling of colonizer statues during the racial equity protests, to the ongoing epidemic of Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women (MMIW) and the past-due reckoning related to assimilation, cultural genocide and Indian Boarding Schools, we have been there to provide a Native perspective and elevate Native voices.

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 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.
