Often at the end of our annual conference participants say "you should do this more often". They are in some sense correct. So, here is what we can do to stay connected and extend the conference experience through March 2017. We have planned three Follow-up Reconnecting Events that will feature the national plenary speakers that we did not have time to share at our 12th annual conference.
Note: All events will be at MSU Center. As much as possible we will partner with a local organization that is doing work related to the plenary presenter's topic. All events are FREE and part of our Monthly Free Movie Night.

"Revolution is on the horizon, and youth are rising with the oceans to lead the movements that will shape our future," says Xiuhtezcatl Martinez, a 16-year old Indigenous rapper and environmental activist (since age 6). He's the award-winning youth director of Earth Guardians, a rapidly growing international organization of young activists, artists and musicians committed to protecting water, air, land and atmosphere. He has organized many rallies, actions, demonstrations and events. He travels globally to speak about environmental and Indigenous issues, including at the United Nations with Robert Redford. He'll bring alive the unparalleled intergenerational movement emerging to save our planet, as youth globally join hearts and hands against some of the world's most powerful industries to take a stand for the future and build resilient communities.
