Please join us for "A Vision for the Urban Indian Community," a community presentation on the Assessment of Assets and Opportunities of the Seattle-King County Urban Indian Population report.
An informal Advisor Committee to the United Way of King County, including Claudia Kauffman, Iris Friday, Laura Wong-Whitebear, Dana Arviso, Jackie Swanson and Lawney Rayes, urged UWKC in cooperation with other local funders including The Seattle Foundation, the City of Seattle and the Muckleshoot Indian Tribe, to commission a special initiative to engage the Seattle-King County urban Indian community in a participatory process to identify the assets, opportunities and future vision for the community. After interviews with key respondents across the community and convening three community stakeholder gatherings to secure diverse input and perspectives, a report consolidating the community vision and key strategic pillars for moving forward has been developed.
This meeting will present report findings to the urban Indian community. Stay tuned for future meetings with other stakeholders and allies.
