 Native American Boys and Men: Avenues to Create Long-Term Success for Milwaukee’s Invisible Population

9:30 a.m.-Noon - Presentation
A panel of Native American professionals who serve Milwaukee’s Native American community provide insight on best practices to help nonprofits that serve and uplift Native American boys and men. An understanding of the Native community today is not complete without a basic understanding of Native American history and its related traumas.
Afternoon Seminar
Dignity First for Boys & Men of Color: What It Is and Why It Matters
12:45 p.m. Registration.
1:00-3:30 p.m. Presentation
Using findings from the ongoing research study, “Shaping a Cooperative Vision for Boys and Men of Color,” which focuses on dignity as a guiding principle and indicator of success for advancing work with boys and men of color, we will explore dignity and its relevance to impactful nonprofit programming.
Hear real examples of effective everyday practice, and discuss what it will take to transform the idea of a dignity- based approach into a reality for your organization. Includes a talk back session focusing on similarities and nuances of dignity from the perspectives of the Black, Latino & Native American experiences.
