With this project, we will contract with 8 local-based, native women professionals and community organizers to pursue project goals between November 2016 to March 2017:

 

  • produce 10 workshops to train fellow native women on ways to increase women citizen participation in 48 communities throughout the Region; and

 

  • produce the 3rd Annual Public Forum at which the Region’s native women leaders will share their novel regional development agenda with new government leaders from the four municipalities.
