New laws are making it harder for Native Americans to vote. Jacqueline DeLeón, an attorney at Native American Rights Fund, lays out what's happening: http://bit.ly/3Awk0Td

ID: Photo of Jacqueline DeLeón on purple background with quote: “We don't have residential mail delivery to many of our homes. We don't have working roads when the election is in November, the wintertime . . . These types of absurd realities are exploited when you have laws that are designed to make it more difficult for Native Americans specifically to vote.”

2020 has been a non-stop kick to the gut and so we felt a desperate need to do something to uplift our collective spirits and feel hope again.

We are Kana Mota and this is our song "Mr President” we created this music and made this video to re-energize the progressive community.

The response we have received since we released it last week has been overwhelmingly positive! We hope you will take a moment to listen, watch, and be inspired to SHARE this with others so we can get this important message of light out to as many as possible.

Let’s keep the positivity going all the way to ‪November 3rd‬!

"When they go low, we go high"!

Peace,
