RES on the Hill

The New Day Now (NDN) Rally set the stage for two Capitol Hill sessions for lawmakers to discuss with conference attendees the issues important to Indian Country, followed by a reception on top of the Hart Senate Office building overlooking the Washington, DC skyline.

Don Young (R-Alaska) Rep. Peter DeFazio (D-Oregon) Rep. Dan Benishek (R-Michigan) Rep. Norma Torres (D-California) Check out what some of these members had to say about RES DC… Senator John Barrasso: “There is a lot of work left to do, and today’s hearing is a good start.

Thank you again for this opportunity to speak to you today. I wish you all a wonderful conference.” Senator Jon Tester: “It’s an honor to speak with Indian Country’s business leaders at this year’s Reservation Economic Summit.

The New Day Now Rally (NDN) in front of the U.S. Capitol was a huge success, and perhaps the first of its kind in Indian Country.

Those issues must be overcome so we can provide a more sustainable and self-sufficient Indian Country for future generations of Native American people. We are committed to living up to our mission that we mean business for Indian Country. The great amount of support we received for the rally affirmed that we are indeed ready for a new day.
