WASHINGTON — Independent U.S. presidential candidate Mark Charles, a citizen of the Navajo Nation, will address the topics of mass incarceration, reparations and the 13th Amendment during a Livestream from Washington, D.C. on Tuesday, January 28, 2020.
Mass incarceration and reparations are two vitally important issues being discussed throughout the 2020 presidential election. Both issues have come up frequently in the Democratic debates and on the campaign trail. In this livestream, Charles will lay out his position regarding reparations and mass incarceration.
Charles will also demonstrate how these issues cannot be adequately addressed until the white supremacy and racism embedded in the Constitution and the 13th Amendment are acknowledged and fixed.

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.
