#NativeWomensEqualPay is a reflection of the systemic colonial barriers that Native women face — barriers to economic opportunity, the epidemic of Missing & Murdered Indigenous Women, lack of healthcare access, and more. We must demand #EquityForNativeWomen. @EqualPay2dayOrg

Native Americans couldn't vote in all 50 states until 1958. Today, states and local governments continue to pass policies that prevent Native voter participation. Help change these systemic problems by donating to NARF to protect Native voting rights: ow.ly/ypsG50G2tEk
