Rocking the Native Vote
Civically informed youth are civically engaged youth! 42 percent-nearly half-of the American Indian and Alaska Native population is under the age of 24. As Indian Country's future leaders, it is important that Native youth are civically informed and prepared to engage in elections. 2012 is an important election year and an opportune time to engage youth and educate them about voting rights and civic responsibility.
During this webinar, educators, tribal leaders, youth coordinators, and mentors can learn about Native Vote's new partnership with Rock the Vote, the Native-specific supplement to the Rock the Vote "Democracy Day" one-class curriculum and ways to get involved with Rock the Native Vote Youth Week, September 24-28th, 2012.
Native Vote for Non-Profits
Indian Country is committed to the largest Native Vote turnout EVER this year.
In partnership with Alliance for Justice, this webinar covers what Native non-profits can and can't do to help reach this important goal!
This session covers the federal rules regarding electoral activities for 501(c)(3)s, including voter registration drives, candidate questionnaires, candidate forums and legislative scorecards.
