Broken Promises Panel Discussion today – June 5

Today, USET SPF President, Kirk Francis, participated in a Congressional panel discussion organized by Rep. Derek Kilmer (D-WA) regarding the recent Broken Promises Report issued by U.S. Commission on Civil Rights. The report confirms what we in Indian Country already know—with the exception of some minor improvements, the U.S. continues to neglect to meet its “most basic” obligations to Tribal Nations. Though these chronic failures have persisted throughout changes in Administration and Congress, it is time that both the legislative and executive branches confront and correct them.
