Sara R is donating a quilt to raise money for INDN’s List, the Indigenous Democratic Network which focuses on electing Native American candidates and mobilizing the Indian Vote.


Goal Thermometer

Support INDN's List
and you could
win this quilt!  >>>

Every contribution of $10+ today on this Act Blue page gets chance in a drawing for the quilt on August 31. No cash, no problem, see essay entry instructions (50 word limit) here.


I've done a fair amount of on-the-ground election work on reservation.  Voter registration, GOTV, event coordination, mailings, and a bunch of data work.  Some years back, I helped the first ever Native American get elected to the Taos School Board.  That's what this star quilt thing is about:  raising funds, through ActBlue, for native candidates around the country.

It's worth noting that most tribes vote overwhelmingly Democratic.  Most of New Mexico's reservation precincts vote c. 90% Democratic, some as high as 95%.  Since they tend to be under-registered, too, it's a good source of additional Democratic votes.  So a good Native American candidate can be just the thing to motivate an Indian to register and vote for the first time.

If you've donated on past days, tossing in $10 or more today will get you another chance in the drawing for the quilt.  Not only that, today's bonus prize is that navajo will buy you dinner - either at Netroots Nation 2011 in Minneapolis next June, or if you come to San Francisco.
