Indigenous Youth Organizing and the Fight for Decolonization

To RSVP to the webinar please register here.

The Andrus Family Fund is honored to invite you to join Edgar Villanueva, author of “Decolonizing Wealth,” to explore how Native youth organizers and philanthropy are resisting colonization in its many forms. Edgar and speakers will explore the premise of his book, which orients audiences into an Indigenous worldview framework, the impact of colonization as a virus and its impact on philanthropy and the finance sector. Organizers and funders together will offer resources to aid in the process of healing and solutions that advance the well-being of Native youth impacted by the justice and other disruptive systems.
