Join Us for American Indian Caucus Day on the HillPublished by brenda.beyal on Thu, 02/02/2017 - 11:28
Join us for a wonderful opportunity! We are taking a bus on Monday, February 6, 2017 to the State Capitol to participate in the American Indian Caucus Day. This is an opportunity to interact with legislators and state and tribal leaders. We will take a tour of the capitol, watch the process of the passing of bills in the House of Representatives chambers and meet legislators. In addition, we will listen in on discussions between state and tribal leaders in our great state. It is also a time to hand deliver letters to your legislator and give voice to your concerns or opinions on matters effecting Native Americans. Parents are also welcome to write letters to be delivered. The issues become of greater importance if a legislator receives hand written letters from their constituents.
A note and permission slip was sent to every Junior High and High school to be handed out to Native American students. If an elementary student would like to participate, we will need a parent or high school sibling to occupying them. Come to Larsen Elementary in Spanish Fork or Cherry Creek Elementary in Springville at 7:00 a.m with lunch in hand or money to buy a lunch. We will be home between 1:30 and 2:00. Please contact Eileen Quintana or Brenda Beyal for more information.
