An Indigenous led grassroots group, organizing & mobilizing to elevate Indian Country into national public consciousness. We are devoted to uplifting the people, defending Indigenous rights, organizing and partnering with groups to help raise awareness. We are excited to announce our women led/Indigenous group based in DC! We are devoted to empowering the people, defending our human rights, organizing and partnering with groups to elevate the voices and issues that the people are facing. We believe in the people. We want to ensure that the injustices happening are being recognized in DC. We will be organizing rallies, marches, panels, direct actions on our own as well as partnering with local organizations. Right now, the fight is for Standing Rock/#NoDAPL, but we will focus on other environmental injustices (Protect Oak Flat as an example), social injustices, defending our women/Missing Murdered Indigenous Women, Violence Against Women Act, #ChangeTheName/NotYourMascot, healthcare, and education. I have been organizing in DC and working with other organizations for the last several months. Standing Rock changed me after I left, and I felt that the need for more voices was crucial, and to have more women voices at the forefront of the fights. I am happy to be doing this with my sister, Ariel, who has been involved with logistics and helping Native In DC. We are eager to elevate these issues and work with progressive minds, with peaceful, non-violent, but purposeful actions. Stand with us, as we stand with you. Mitakuye Oyasin, We Are All Related. Sincerely, Rising Hearts ♥Activity status unknown.
