Protecting the Sacred with Tai Simpson
The Idaho Democratic Women’s Caucus wholeheartedly invite Democratic Women throughout Idaho to the IDP Clint Stennent Conference breakfast with Tai Simpson. The event is on Sunday, October 6, 2019, from 7:30 am to 9 am at the Best Western Plus Coeur d’Alene Inn, which is located at 506 W Appleway in Coeur d’Alene. Tickets to the breakfast are $30.00 per person and can be bought using this link.
We are proud to announce that our featured guest will be Tai Simpson, a 2019 TEDxBoise speaker. Tai is a Nez Perce tribal member and a social change advocate with the Idaho Coalition Against Sexual and Domestic Violence. She will be discussing the Protecting the Sacred: A Primer on Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women (MMIW), which is a movement to raise awareness about the number of missing and murdered Native American women in Canada and the United States. The US Department of Justice reports that Native American women face murder rates that are more than ten times the national average. Tai Simpson is a wonderful storyteller who has participated in the 2019 Indigenous People’s March in the nation’s capital.
Come enjoy the Full Sunrise Traditional breakfast, which includes country red-skinned potatoes, honey glazed ham, brown sugar bacon, maple sausage links, fluffy scrambled eggs, chilled orange juice, coffee, teas, seasonal fruit, muffins, and pastries, before you head back home from the conference. We look forward to seeing everyone at the breakfast and encourage attendees to buy their tickets online to speed up the check-in process. As a reminder, this event helps raise funds to help get more Democratic women elected in Idaho.
