The National Congress of American Indians is seeking Native American volunteers to spend the day and/or evening with us at the Capitol, dressed in traditional regalia, in support of the passage of the Indian Health Care Improvement Act. The Senate will start debate on IHCIA at 11 a.m. on Tuesday, January 22, 2008 and begin voting by 5:30 p.m. NCAI will provide lunch and dinner for volunteers. We would like a strong visual presence of Native Americans on Capitol Hill to encourage Senators to vote in favor of the Indian Health Care Improvement Act. If you are interested in volunteering or would like more information, please contact April Hale at the information given below.
Thank you for your support!
