In 1969, Wilma Mankiller occupied Alcatraz and it was there that she became inspired to live a life of activism and public service. In honor of Sexual Assault Awareness Month we are asking the question, “What can we as Native women do to organize ourselves and stand in solidarity with one another?” This past year has been a huge resurgence for women around the globe. From Tahrir Square in Egypt, to the SlutWalks that began in Ontario, and the current fight in the U.S. for reproductive justice. We want to hear from you and your ideas about how we can continue to fight for our rights.

The United Nations Declaration on Rights of Indigenous People. 
Although not official international law, it carries moral and political force. It is a statement and agreement recognizing and empowering Indigenous people. It is also a commitment from the state, to address concerns specific to Indigenous people. Out of 158 countries, the United States was dead last to sign and refused to until 2010; President Obama adopted the Declaration at the White House Tribal Nations Conference. 
Today, the U.S. is not living up to even the bare minimum requirements of the U.N. Declaration.

The reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act would mean more support for Native women. As it goes in front of Committee this week, it is expected to be stopped. Call your Senator.
