MYCJ HR 6707 Virtual Letter Writing Party for Youth
HR 6707 (sponsored by Rep. Jared Golden, co-sponsored by Rep. Chellie Pingree) is legislation that would amend the 1980 Maine Indian Claims Settlement Act so that the Wabanaki tribes can benefit from future federal laws that apply to other federally recognized tribes. HR 6707 has already passed the US House of Representatives. Now the Wabanaki Alliance and other tribal allies are encouraging Sen. Collins and Sen. King to support the bill in the U.S. Senate. To support this advocacy push, MYCJ is hosting a youth letter-writing workshop on Thursday, December 15th from 6:00-7:00 PM. Youth participants will learn about the bill’s background and choose from talking points to include in our advocacy. We will write our letters as a group so we can support each other with form, content, and clarity. Finally, we will learn how to submit our letters to Maine’s senators.
