Call to Action: Demand Your Tribal Councilor Vote No

The fight to stop the passage of the Election Law that will define "term" into "full term" and undermine our Constitution is not over. Now is the time to act. Please contact your council men/women and demand they vote no on the proposed term definition.

If you email them, keep a copy of the email. If you call them, write down the date and time of the call. If you get an answering machine, leave a message. If they don't return your call, make a notation of that, and then call them back the next day. Continue to try to reach them, making a notation of each attempt, until you do manage to get a response from them.

Each individual Cherokee holds power -- the power of their voice. Use your power and demand your voice be heard by the council person who serves YOU. They are supposed to carry your voice to the council table. Remind them that if they don't do that, they can be replaced with someone who will.

The Cherokee Nation belongs to the Cherokee people and our leaders serve us. If you are unhappy with this proposed law, then let your leaders know. Together we Cherokees can accomplish a lot through hard work and determination. Let's stop this definition of term. I can't promise it will be easy, but I can promise it will be worth it.

Those are my thoughts for today.
Thanks for reading.
