CNAY Connects with Tribal Leaders, Programs, and Native Youth in California

During the first week of December, CNAY’s Erik Stegman traveled to Palm Springs to represent the Center for Native American Youth at the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention’s (OJJDP) Tribal Youth Conference and the Office for Victims of Crime‘s annual Indian Nations Conference. At both events, Erik presented CNAY’s findings from youth roundtables, the Gen-I online survey, and CNAY’s inaugural State of Native Youth report on Native youth and the justice system.

CNAY also connected with Native youth and program staff from the Morongo Band of Mission Indians and the Agua Caliente Band of Cahuilla Indians. The purpose of these meetings was to introduce CNAY’s work, share resources for Native youth, and learn how CNAY can better partner with and advocate for these communities through our work.
