North Dakota Native Vote Stands with Black Lives Matter

North Dakota Native Vote stands in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter Movement. The murder of George Floyd is another tragic example of the police brutality that plagues communities across the country. Even in North Dakota, we have seen that none of our communities are immune to the violence of overtly militarized police presence.

All too often, institutional racism carries out violence upon black and brown bodies when we fight systemic injustices, we are met with unnecessary force. Police brutality reinforces white supremacy and perpetuates the notion of genocide that has been ingrained into the political and social fabric of the United States.

Our position is to enhance racial and cultural equity through a political lens and to build opportunity for people of color through grassroots organizing and policy advocacy that promotes well-being for families and communities.

Structural racism affects every facet of our lives, down to the very decisions that are made on behalf of communities of color without our input. We know that justice can only be reached with the inclusion of all voices. The events of 2020 have shown us just how much we need to work together for a more equitable future for us all.

“If you have come here to help me you are wasting your time, but if you have come because your liberation is bound up with mine, then let us work together.” –Lilla Watson
