Why It Matters: The Native Vote in Montana
In every election, the Native American vote is important. Many experts credit the Native American vote with being the deciding factor in elections across the country, including the 2020 presidential election and Senate races in Montana, Alaska, and North Dakota (The Aspen Institute). Panelists will discuss grassroots get-out-the-vote and census work as well as trends in Indigenous communities around civic engagement.
Panelists include U.S. Staff Sergeant and Crow Reservation Organizer Lauri Dawn Kindness, University of Montana Professor Jason Begay, and Montana Native Vote Executive Director Marci McLean in a conversation moderated by journalist and Threshold podcast host Amy Martin.
WHEN: March 3, 2021 from 4:00 – 5:15 p.m. (MST)
WHAT TO EXPECT: A moderated conversation on Zoom with an opportunity to connect in the chat.
