The First American Project PAC is a political coalition founded by an all-star coalition of Native American leaders from Washington State’s Tribal Nations and their allies from fellow communities of color to advocate for righteous environmental and civil rights policies for all American communities. The First American Project’s first priority in 2018 is to pass I-1631, the comprehensive climate change policy that was co-authored by Native American and community of color leaders.
Co-founded by Fawn Sharp, President of the Quinault Indian Nation and past President of the Affiliated Tribes of Northwest Indians, and Estela Ortega, the Executive Director of El Centro de la Raza (who is acting as a private citizen), the First American Project is a minority-led organization that will be an aggressive and permanent advocate for policies that safeguard the environment, empower disadvantaged communities, and fight for the human rights of all Americans.
The First American Project PAC is co-managing the I-1631 campaign in an unprecedented partnership with the Yes on I-1631 Campaign and leaders from the environmental community, labor community, and advocates for communities of color.
