Categories: Indian Child Welfare Act
November 16–19, 2020, join us as we celebrate the Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA) and its legacy of protecting Native children and supporting Native families.
In honor of ICWA’s 42nd anniversary and Native American Heritage Month, NICWA and our partners from the Protect ICWA Campaign, the National Congress of American Indians, the Association on American Indian Affairs, and the Native American Rights Fund, are launching the #ICWAForFamilies social media campaign to spread awareness about ICWA, its impact on American Indian and Alaska Native children and families, and the broad and diverse base of support for the Act.
Help spread awareness about ICWA by participating in our social media campaign from Monday, November 16, through Thursday, November 19.
Join the Campaign
Each day, we will be unified in sharing one message. For sample posts and shareable graphics for Monday through Wednesday, take a look at our Social Media Toolkit, or feel free to create your own unique posts.

Join our Tweet Chat
Our Tweet Chat will conclude the campaign on Thursday, November 19th, 10 a.m.–11 a.m. PT. The Tweet Chat will be one-hour long with a new question every fifteen minutes of the hour. The first question tweet to answer will start with “Q1,” the second will be “Q2,” and so on. Tweet your response with “A1” for “Q1,” and “A2” for “Q2,” etc. Find questions below and in our social media toolkit:
- Q1: How does #ICWA protect American Indian and Alaska Native children and families?
- Q 2: #NativeFamilies: how has ICWA impacted you, your family, or your community?
- Q 3: November is Native American Heritage Month. Why is it important for people to learn about ICWA’s protections this #NAHM?
- Q 4: Why is connection with family, community, and culture important for American Indian and Alaska Native children?
