Open letter to Senator Heitkamp of ND

Dear Senator Heitkamp,

As a follow up to our Op- Ed respectfully signed and submitted to both you and Senator Hoeven on August 16, 2018 by 41 North Dakota Native Women Leaders, we thank you for voting no on the Supreme Court nomination of Brett Kavanaugh. We also want to thank you again for taking time to visit with us last month while our delegation traveled to Washington, D.C.

We know there is much work to be done moving forward but not one of us can do it alone. We hope to continue to work together in support of one another as we navigate through these challenging times. As mentioned in our meeting with you in DC., every action we take is for future generations. It’s very important we continue to build trust and meaningful relationships throughout our communities together for our future.

We, North Dakota Native Women leaders, thank you for taking courage for our future generations, because they matter most. We also would like to thank you for acknowledging that any appointment to the Supreme Court of the United States is important to all citizens; and that the absence of morality and ethics can tarnish the integrity of our judicial system and our country.

We thank you as grandmothers, mothers, sisters, aunts, and Native women for ensuring that our grandchildren will know the value of standing for what is right and that regardless of our gender, we are all created equal. We thank you Senator Heitkamp, we encourage our other congressional delegates to follow your exemplary leadership.

Respectfully,
41 ND Native Women
