Friends and Family,
I hope you all had a great holiday weekend with your family. As you know, I am a staff attorney at the Tribal Law and Policy Institute<http://www.home.tlpi.org/> (TLPI), a non-profit organization dedicated to providing law and policy services, training, and technical assistance for the benefit of Native Nations and Native peoples. You know we rarely solicit donations, but with it being Giving Tuesday and all, I hope you will join me in dedicating our morning coffee (or month’s coffee) towards good work.
As the water protectors prepare for colder nights, all of Indian country is bracing for battles to come. We remain resolute in our commitment to protecting tribal sovereignty, indigenous justice, and the safety of Natives. I have always been proud of TLPI’s almost stubborn insistence that tribes require the most sophisticated legal analysis that is in deference to indigenous justice systems, and for free. With your help, we can continue to make this so.
Today, I intend on giving to organizations that aim to do good work, and follow through. For me, this includes TLPI. For those of you attending the OVC Indian Nations Conference<http://www.ovcinc.org/>, Aurora and I look forward to seeing you and wish you safe travels. I wish you all a beautiful and safe holiday season with your loved ones.
Check out more about TLPI below (including a sweet staff picture!).

Today, you can transform the way you participate in the holiday season by participating in Giving Tuesday, a global day dedicated to giving, which began as a way to give back to the community after Black Friday and Cyber Monday.
As the Tribal Law and Policy Institute (TLPI) completes its 20th year of service, I am reaching out to you to ask for a tax-deductible donation so our organization can continue to provide quality services and resources for American Indian and Alaska Native communities in the challenging days ahead. You can help us develop more publications, administer more regional and national trainings, and provide a broader range of other vital law and policy services for Native communities.
You can help us further our mission of enhancing and strengthening tribal sovereignty and justice while honoring community values, protecting rights, and promoting well-being.
Last year we were able to raise $11,600 in donations.Our goal this year is to raise $18,500. With the increasing likelihood of federal funding cuts in the near future, we need your help now more than ever.
Will you help us reach our goal so that we can provide exceptional training, technical assistance, and resources for Native communities?
Your tax-deductible donation will help us to provide increased training and resources for the tribes, tribal court systems, and tribal victim services programs that we serve every day. Your donation will allow us to further our mission of enhancing and strengthening tribal sovereignty and justice while honoring community values, protecting rights and promoting well-being.
Will you invest in Strengthening
Tribal Sovereignty and Justice?
