America’s Most Vulnerable Children — Advancing Equity for Native Youth (Aspen Policy Series)

Featured Scholars: Carly Bad Heart Bull, Joaquin Gallegos. Additional Featured Speaker: Anita Fineday. //
Over 2 million Native youth under the age of 24 currently live on reservations and in urban settings within the United States. Centuries of failed policies and chronic underfunding of the federal government’s treaty-based services have led to intolerable disparities in the well-being of young Native Americans. This discussion highlights experiences of America’s most at-risk population and explores the need to invest in innovative solutions addressing health inequity, expand educational opportunity, and leverage resources to create pathways for Native American youth to lead full and meaningful lives.
