Rep Finney says "just do it"
Stephanie says "let the loud voice be the one that we all have the right to be treated equally"
Paulette shares that you have to expect conflict sometimes - working as an advocate isn't always easy! Sometimes you have to walk away. Surround yourself with people who love you just as you are. Love yourself! She brings to light the issue of intergenerational trauma within Indian Country - forced sterilization, for example, was occurring as recently as the 1970s. She says "don't give up - don't quit! Enlist your friends - educate yourself. Drop knowledge every chance you get. Don't be ashamed to be loud!" Advocacy can be depressing, but don't quit! Our survival is on the line!
