Rock the Vote Native Style panel features local voices

Rock the Vote Native Style held a virtual panel late last week about political engagement, voter participation and building collective power in Indigenous communities across the state.

During the discussion, Rock the Vote Native Style’s Nancy Beaulieu emphasized that elections have consequences.
