Deb Haaland at She the People

Anathea Chino, advancement director for UltraViolet and co-founder of Advance Native Political Leadership, introduces Deb Haaland, who on Nov. 6 made history as one of the first two Native American women ever elected to Congress. Haaland, who will represent New Mexico's First Congressional District beginning in 2019, spoke about why she believes Congress needs to be filled with more "people who understand struggle, who understand persistence, and who know what it means to be fierce in the face of difficulty."
