NCUIH Federal Relations Director Advocates During the DHS Community Engagement Roundtable

The National Council of Urban Indian Health (NCUIH) attended the Department of Homeland Security Community Engagement Roundtable on Racial Equity, Community Policing, and Supporting Underserved Communities on June 24th, 2021. Director of Federal Relations, Sunny Stevenson, spoke to the Officer for Civil Rights and Civil Liberties, Katherine Culliton-González, on the inadequate healthcare and federal data standards of AI/AN people. Racial inclusivity in data standards is important for accurately representing the decades of adversity Native people have faced in fatal encounters with law enforcement, trafficking of indigenous women and girls, racism, and healthcare disparities like seen during the COVID-19 pandemic.
