NUIFC Report Release // A Vision For Our Community. A Voice For Change. A Vote For Our Future. A Report on the 2018 Urban Native Vote.
In October 2018, the National Urban Indian Family Coalition (NUIFC) launched a national voter and civic engagement initiative targeting 17 urban American Indian communities across the country across the country representing nearly 850,000 Native people.
This ambitious endeavor was critical for Urban American Indians, which make up over 65% of the total American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) population in the U.S., but who are often not included or engaged in “get out of vote” and traditional civic engagement programs. The NUIFC invested $420,000 directly into 17 Urban Indian organizations in 16 states across the country. The organizations participating in this initiativehave a history of effectively serving their respective Native communities with a range of culturally-responsiveservices and resources.
