Champions for ChangeToday Senator Byron Dorgan, the founder and chairman of the Center for Native American Youth, will moderate a panel-discussion to commemorate November’s National Native American Heritage Month and announce the launch of a new initiative, called Champions for Change, to shine a spotlight on inspirational stories and promote hope in Indian Country. The local DC Native community, supporters of Indian Country, and new stakeholders will join the event entitled, “Celebrating Native Voices: Native Youth – Our Future, Our Inspiration.” The event continues the dialogue on Native youth policy priorities, and explores the inspirational contributions Native youth are making in their communities.
