Join us as we talk about youth activism with Charitie Ropati, a member of the Native Village of Kongiganak in Alaska, is an undergraduate student at Columbia University. A 2019 Center for Native American Youth Champion for Change, Charitie is an active advocate for decolonizing Western pedagogies and creating more Native-centric curricula in public education while bringing awareness to the dropout rate of Indigenous students. Charitie and her work was recognized in 2019 by the Malala Fund, an organization created to inspire girls and young women to use their voices in advocacy for various human rights. Charitie was also featured in Teen Vogue's August 2020 Issue celebrating the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment.
