Meet the 2019 Class of Champions for Change

The Aspen Institute’s Center for Native American Youth (CNAY) will celebrate its seventh cohort of CNAY Champions for Change in Washington, DC. The 2019 Champions include Autumn Adams (Confederated Tribes and Bands of the Yakama Nation), Shandiin Herrera (Navajo Nation), Madison White (Mohawk Nation at Akwesasne), Charitie Ropati (Native Village of Kongiganak), and Adam Soulor (The Mohegan Tribe).

The 2019 Champions for Change serve as representatives of the next generations of leaders in Indian Country. From Alaska to Connecticut to Washington, the 2019 Champions have advocated for issues important to them, including improving child welfare systems, decolonizing education standards, or supporting victims of sexual assault.
