CNAY to Host Roundtable Meeting with Federal Agencies and Non-Profit Organizations on 9/10

On September 10, CNAY will host its 18th Policy and Resource Roundtable themed “Aligning Federal and Tribal Advocacy Efforts with Ally Organizations” in an effort to increase prioritization of Native youth issues and improve communication, coordinated action and collaboration across stakeholder groups. The meetings, which take place each quarter, include representatives from over 30 federal agencies and 10 national tribal organizations.

The meeting will feature remarks from CNAY founder and chairman, Senator Byron Dorgan (ret.) and perspectives from two Champions for Change, Lauren McLester-Davis, Oneida Tribe of Wisconsin, and Sarah Schilling, Little Traverse Bay Bands of Odawa Indians. Following the youth perspectives, representatives from the White House will speak about the importance of engaging ally organizations and building public-private partnerships to ultimately improve outcomes for Native American youth.
