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
