FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. —Northeast Arizona Democrats are attempting to get a head start on the 2020 election by sponsoring a Diné Voter Registration Rally at Navajo Gaming’s Twin Arrows Resort on Saturday, February 8, 2020 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Flagstaff, Ariz.
The rally’s main attraction is Rep. Sharice Davids (D-Kansas), who is a tribal citizen of the Ho-Chunk Nation and one of the first American Indians elected to the U.S. House of Representatives. She won a historic victory in November 2018.

Rally attendees will be able to visit with and learn more about elected officials and 2020 candidates, check their voter registration status, learn how to register voters, volunteer in upcoming political outreach or learn about available job openings in the Arizona Democratic Party.
This free event is open to the public and lunch will be served. RSVP below required to secure lunch and seat: https://secure.ngpvan.com/DKb–saTlUuP5dWcT6KIHQ2

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.
