The Indian Law Resource Center Among Presenters at Historic Gathering

The Center’s Executive Director Robert T. Coulter helped kick off the Breaking Through Power event May 23, 2016, in Washington, D.C.  Speaking under the theme Breaking Through Power: How it’s Done, Coulter shared the challenges facing indigenous peoples today and what can be done to make sure the rights of indigenous peoples are protected. The four-day event is bringing together accomplished advocates and diverse groups – fighters for justice – to show that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts and that it’s easier than you may think to make major changes.  Ralph Nader, a long-time personal supporter of the Indian Law Resource Center, organized the event to spark fresh energies, ideas, and strategies to “flex our civic muscle.”
