Show your support for the Women Run! of South Dakota

October 27th, 2008     by Jessica Yee     Comments

My bags are packed and ready to hit the ground running until the election in South Dakota to mobilize against the proposed abortion ban and how this will specifically affect Native American communities which are quite populous in the state.

But before I leave, I want to introduce you to some amazing women who are nothing short of warriors that make up Women Run!

Women Run! is the umbrella organization for progressive pro-choice Native American women running for the state legislature: among them are some of my personal heroes; Charon Asetoyer, Theresa Spry, Diane Long Fox Kastner, and incumbent Senator Theresa Two Bulls (the first, and so far only, Native American woman elected to the State Senate, now running for a third term).

If you can spare a dime, or even just a letter or word of support, please do, it is sorely needed and their contact information is all listed on the website.

Wish us luck and prayers, and hope that women will not have their right to choose taken away in an area that already marginalizes them in so many different ways.
