About Us

California Native Vote Project, or CNVP, is the first-of-its-kind statewide effort to engage Native American communities across dozens of counties to build political power through an integrated voter engagement strategy.

CNVP launched three months prior to the 2016 presidential election to register and educate Native American community members, and has since expanded into organizing, census advocacy and outreach, research, policy and leadership development -- all part of an integrated-voter engagement approach.
