Invitation: Center for Native American Youth Event – Champions for Change Launch

 

Celebrating
Native American Voices: 

Native Youth – Our
Future, Our Inspiration

Senator Byron Dorgan and
the Center for Native American Youth invite you to celebrate National Native
American Heritage Month by hearing the inspirational stories of our youngest
First Americans. The event will be a dialogue about the importance of
portraying Native children in a positive light and sharing positive stories
in Indian Country. The Center’s founder, Senator Byron Dorgan, will announce
the creation of the Center’s Champions for Change (CFC) program, a spin-off of
a White House Initiative, created to recognize and encourage inspirational
Native American youth working in their tribal or urban Indian communities to
promote hope and make a positive impact.
