MILWAUKEE, WI – Wisconsin Native Vote, the Native American Rights Fund (NARF), and the Ho-Chunk Nation will host a dinner and presentation for tribal members to discuss how the upcoming Wisconsin Supreme Court election impacts Native communities.

Tribal judges and Native leaders will speak to participants about the role of the Supreme Court, challenges Native voters face, and the importance of voting in the April 4 spring election. Milwaukee is home to the largest concentration of Native people in the state, with a diverse population from tribes around Wisconsin and the country. Their participation in Wisconsin elections will undoubtedly make a difference in its outcome.
