Tell Congress: Support our Native children!
Our federal government is failing our American Indian, Alaska Native and Native Hawaiian children. According to the Center for Native American Youth, Native children are more likely to be victims of child abuse, have lower high school and college graduation rates, are more likely to end up in foster homes and have a suicide rate that?s 2.5 times the national average.
This is unacceptable. The bipartisan bill to establish the Alyce Spotted Bear and Walter Soboleff Commission on Native Children would create a commission to study the problem and devise a solution to this much-ignored problem.
Add your name to the right to stand with Sens. Heitkamp and Begich and support the Commission on Native Children.
