Civic Boot Camp: Native American Youth Advocacy
June 11 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pmFree – $75
Seattle CityClub is hosting a three-part series of virtual Civic Boot Camps, Native American Leadership in the Salish Sea Region, to explore the contributions of local Tribal leadership to our community and civic landscape. Through a series of webinars with panels of Native adult and youth leaders, we’ll discuss the role, responsibility, and contributions of Tribal leadership to our community as they work with multiple levels of government and non-tribal organizations to manage our natural resources and address social, environmental, and health issues.
Listen, ask questions, and get the knowledge and inspiration needed to engage in your community and work toward solutions. As part of this curriculum, all participants will also receive links to informational interviews with community leaders, key articles, videos, websites, and volunteer resources.
For this second webinar on June 11, our speakers will discuss their advocacy to raise public awareness about critical social, cultural, and environmental issues impacting Native communities and the bold steps they’re taking to create positive change. They’ll cover issues such as Native language revitalization, legislation to ban Native mascots in high schools, and criminal justice regarding Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women.
