Arizona’s 2nd Congressional district deserves better. Northeast Arizona Native Democrats and Former Navajo Nation President Jonathan Nez are working to deliver a representation that understands the needs of this vast district. AZ’s CD2 is the most native district in the country with over 23% of the population being Indigenous, CD2 is home to 14 federally recognized tribes and in redistricting these voters were purposefully drawn into a tougher district to win.
The work NEAZ has done to build a powerful electorate was on the radar of the redistricting committee and they diluted the Indigenous vote by 5 points, That left us in Northern Arizona with an extremist in office who has allied himself with the likes of Matt Gaetz and Paul Gosar. I’ll say it again: we deserve better. In their cynical attempt to dilute the native vote they may have miscalculated, as responding to that injustice, WITH YOUR HELP we can harness the energy to take back the seat!
Since 2019 the Northeast Arizona Native Democrats have been working year round to empower voters on sovereign land to elect candidates of their choosing and votes have done just that, delivering decisive votes for President Biden, Senator Kelly, Gov. Hobbs, and Attorney General Mayes and other key down ballot races. This year is our opportunity to bring the fight to Republicans and return the gerrymandered CD2 seat to a Democrat, AND elect a Native American Representative to represent Arizona in Congress for the first time in history. It’s not going to be easy but we have a winning formula. It will require investment in tribal communities that can deliver the winning votes for Jonathan Nez.
Why we think we can win:
Northeast Arizona Native Democrats offer an election tested program that is proven to get out the Native vote. We know our tactics are successful and we are ready to use all of our resources to help elect Jonathan Nez a leader whose experience and skill will support all communities in CD2
In 2024 we:
will invest in 10 full and part time organizers
Train volunteer Family Votes Matriarchs on Navajo, Hopi and White Mountain Apache Lands
Build a bench of strong youth leaders and organizers with our paid internships in our Youth Votes programs
Continue our direct voter contact program that has already made over 130K voter contacts in 2023.
In Jonathan Nez we have a candidate who:
Led the Navajo Nation through the COVID-19 pandemic as President
Secured funds to construct new healthcare facilities and Veterans homes
Invested in infrastructure improvements
Brought clean water and electricity to thousands of previously unserved residents.
Will protect the Grand Canyon region from uranium mining.
Will stand up for the rights of allahabad district residents, including abortion rights, voting rights, and civil rights.
Together we can retire the current far right MAGA “crazy eight’ extremist from federal office and elect a proven public servant who will put aside the politics of drama and division and actually lead.
