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.

It's December 2020, can you help...
We’re asking our readers for a little help as 2020 draws to a close. If you can afford it, we hope you’ll consider a one-time donation of $5 or more to help fund our Indigenous-led coverage of important news throughout Indian Country. Covering the news hasn’t been easy this year, but we believe it’s been critically important given the changes and upheaval we’ve experienced — from COVID-19 and the 2020 Census, to issues of racial equity, efforts to suppress the Native vote, and far too many stories of Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women and Girls.
Because we believe everyone in Indian Country deserves equal access to news and commentary pertaining to them, their relatives and their communities, the story you’ve just finished was free — and we want to keep it that way, for all readers. But we hope it inspires you to make a gift to Native News Online so that we can continue publishing more stories that make a difference to Native people, whether they live on or off the reservation. Your donation will help us keep producing quality journalism and elevating Indigenous voices. Any contribution of any amount, big or small, gives us a better, stronger future and allows us to remain a force for change.
