NIHB sends letter to USCCR Regarding Withholding of COVID-19 Report

The National Indian Health Board (NIHB) has submitted a letter to the United State Commission on Civil Rights (USCCR) to express concern about their recent decision to not release a report that detailed COVID-19’s impact on Indian Country. In the letter we expressed our belief that this report contains information that would be vital for helping Tribal leaders respond to the pandemic, through both direct action and advocacy for policy changes. We are deeply disappointed in this decision and the lack of justification provided for it. We hope that the USCCR reverses this decision and releases their report.
