Native American Fair Commerce Coalition Retains C2 Group

C2 Group Joins NAFCC in Advocating on Behalf of Native American Sovereignty in Washington

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwire - Feb 23, 2012) - The Native American Fair Commerce Coalition (NAFCC), a representative organization comprised of like-minded tribes and tribal members that are committed to protecting the sovereign rights -- well settled in US law -- of Native Americans to pursue business and economic opportunities for their tribes, has retained C2 Group to represent the organization in Washington, DC before the Executive Branch of the federal government and the United States Congress.

C2 Group will join NAFCC Executive Director Barry Brandon in advocating on behalf of the organization and its tribal membership towards the preservation of tribal sovereignty, especially as it relates to business and economic development and conducting business on tribal land.

Tom Crawford, Founding Partner of C2 Group, said, "The NAFCC has a critical role to play in advancing economic development in Native American communities and in educating Members of Congress, Administration officials and policy makers on the challenges facing Native Americans, the opportunities that exist to create and fulfill economic transformation through good business practices and the importance of tribal sovereignty in fulfilling these goals."

"Tom Crawford and C2 Group bring an unparalleled and distinguished track record of success protecting the vital interests of private businesses before the Congress and the Executive branches of government. The long established and solid legal based rights of Native American tribes continue to be attacked and we are pleased to be able to call upon the exceptional skills of C2 Group to help us defend tribal sovereignty and to promote the self determination of Tribal governments," said Brandon.
