The Utah League of Native American Voters presented the inaugural Native American Issues Forum. This was the first ever forum hosted by the Native American voting bloc in Utah, in partnership with allies and friends, to discuss Native American issues and concerns in Utah electoral politics. 

Issues covered ranged from land management, water rights, natural resource extraction and fossil fuel development, protection of sacred sites, culturally competent education, employment in economies crippled by federal and state law, adequate representation and acknowledgement in key decision-making structures, homeless native youth, violence in the native LGBTQ community, domestic violence, to substance abuse, and so forth, marking a series of issues not addressed and often ignored by elected officials and the current cadre of candidates.
