Defend Native Children and Sovereignty

Right now, conservative states and fossil fuel lawyers intend to dismantle Indigenous rights and sovereignty by overturning the Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA) via a majority conservative Supreme Court. Please join the Lakota People's Law Project in asking President Biden to take immediate action — up to and including an Executive Order — protecting Native children and sovereignty. Federal agencies must allocate funding, dedicate human resources, and empower Native nations to create tribally-run child welfare programs and maintain our right to self-determination.
