About the Campaign

Founded in 2018, Sacred Generations is a Native-led healing and racial justice movement of medicine organizing system-impacted tribal communities to end educational inequity, mass incarceration and climate injustice in Native California

Just a few short months after founding Sacred Generations, we published the very first voter guide designed to educate and heal Native California - asking every candidate on the ballot to publicly share their solidarity with sovereign tribal communities. Because of this work, never again will candidates be able to run for public office in the state with the largest Native population in the nation without publicly sharing their solidarity with Native peoples on our stolen land. That's historical movement building. That’s the #SacredVote.

This new year, help us make the #SacredVote bigger and better. We need your help to bring down the costs of outreach to continue building sovereign civic leadership for the next ground breaking #SacredVote campaign. Our children now live in a world where they know how elected representatives stand with Native movements - and they have an advocacy tool to hold them accountable, if and when they're elected

$58K for 58 counties in 5 weeks. Your contribution opens a pathway for our team to provide Native voters and allies access to more innovative voter education resources, advocacy tools and networks supporting Indigenous movements to help restore our land and people. Join our movement of medicine to protect sovereign nations and #HonorTheSacred in Native California. We have many more exciting announcements coming this year! Imagine the future we can build together!
