Guest speaker William Miller, Cherokee/Blackfeet, NAYA Familiy Center Health Equity Program Coordinator will provide a November 2018 Election Debrief: after getting out the Native Vote here in the Portland Metro Area and around the State of Oregon what next? What do the results mean for our city, county, regional, and state governments and for our families.
