Rocking the Native Vote!

Join us for an Important Webinar:

Rocking the Native Vote

Your role in the partnership between   

Rock the Vote & Native Vote 

Date:   Tuesday, June 5, 2012

Time:   1:00 PM - 2:00 PM EDT


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 (designed for educators, tribal leaders, youth coordinators, and mentors) we will:

  • Learn about Native Vote's new partnership with Rock the Vote and introduce resources for Native Vote coordinators;
  • NCAI will introduce the new Native-specific supplement to the Rock the Vote "Democracy Day" one-class curriculum.
  • Discuss the tools and resources available to encourage youth civic engagement;
  • Provide ways to get involved with Rock the Native Vote Youth Week, to take place this year September 24-28th.

Participants will include:

  • Jacqueline Pata, Executive Director of National Congress of American Indians
  • Heather Smith, President, Rock the Vote
  • Jaynie Parish, Field Organizer for Rock the Vote Southwest

Native Pride. Native Power. Native Vote. 
Every Voice Counts! 

Native Vote is a nonpartisan campaign initiated by the National Congress of American Indians (NCAI). The campaign works with community organizers, non-profits, urban Indian centers, tribal governments, and regional organizations to create a strong and permanent infrastructure for election training that highlights voter registration, election protection policies, and voter education.
