SEATTLE – On Wednesday, February 8, 2017, the one-year anniversary of the birth of the national advocacy campaign, #stopdisenrollment, the movement will recommence …
The imagery and message of the inaugural campaign (see http://stopdisenrollment.com/) reverberated throughout Indian Country, with international and local mainstream and tribal media outlets covering that campaign and using that imagery to highlight disenrollment, including Al Jazeera (TV), High Country News, Seattle Times, Indian Country Today, The Stranger, Crosscut, and Indianz.com.
The #stopdisenrollment hashtag has since last year become prominent as an expression against disenrollment, with the New York Times recently reporting that as many as “9,000 people in 79 tribes across 20 states” having been jettisoned by their kin. It remains the goal of the movement to have as many indigenous peoples express #stopdisenrollment, as there are disenrolled indigenous peoples.
