Impact Hub Against Racism: Indigenous Activism & Entrepreneurship
NDN Collective is the most ambitious, systemic effort to empower Indigenous communities in the history of philanthropy. Nikki Pieratos’ work as managing director at the Collective, and as an entrepreneur with Harvest Nation, have given her personal and professional perspective on the successes and challenges that Native Americans experience due to existing systems in the United States.
Join us for a conversation about decolonization, the Land Back initiative, which parallels Black Lives Matter by including many issues, and the ways that social entrepreneurs can help to dismantle racist systems of power. Nikki will present for the first 30 minutes, after which the floor will be open for discussion.
If you have a question for Nikki in advance of the meeting, please submit it here.
The event is free to attend. Please donate if you can to help us continue to pay BIPOC presenters for their time and expertise.
