opening arguments of the Indian Child Welfare case.

The Supreme Court heard oral arguments on Wednesday, in Brackeen v. Haaland, a case that could gut the Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA) — a law that establishes basic requirements to protect Native American children from continued forced removal from their families, tribes, and tribal culture, ACLU said.

WASHINGTON D.C -- This morning Indigenous organizers and allies shut down the lobby of the Gibson Dunn law firm in Washington D.C, protesting their involvement in trying to strike down the Indian Child Welfare Act for their big oil client, Energy Transfer.

The Supreme Court is hearing arguments on Brackeen V. Haaland today and will decide if they will gut ICWA in 2023, which will further weaken tribal sovereignty. Organizers entered the lobby with a drum singing prayer songs before security removed them from the building.
