Dear Progressive Secretary Supporter

Here is another opportunity to make your voice heard. Progressive Secretary is “Activism Made Easy.”

Our letter supports a campaign by Daily Kos Liberation League, TakeItBack.Org, Demand Progress, and others. It asks the House of Representatives to honor our treaty with the Cherokee Nation when we promised them the right to send a delegate to Congress. 

We will send your email messages to your House member.

In 1835, the Cherokee Nation negotiated a treaty with the United States. The Cherokee ceded their ancestral lands in return for a distant reservation.

This treaty also guaranteed the Cherokee Nation the right to send a delegate to Congress. Their representation would be similar to the current representation for the residents of Washington, D.C. The Cherokee delegate would not be able to vote on the House floor but would have the power to make speeches and vote in committee.

The House of Representatives has the authority to finally honor the representation clause of the treaty the Cherokee Nation signed and must do so immediately. Please seat their representative now. 

Click here to send this letter or to learn more (you can edit the letter in the next step if you wish).

Sincerely,

Kathie Turner, Executive Director
