RMICC / Native Inc. host first Health Equity Learning Series
Denver, CO 2/5/2015 - Rocky Mountain Indian Chamber of Commerce (RMICC) partnered with Denver American Indian Commission (DAIC) in hosting the 1st Health Equity Learning Series of 2015.
In early January RMICC was funded by The Colorado Trust foundation to host four (4) satellite educational sessions throughout 2015.
February 5, 2015 was the very first session RMICC hosted with DAIC at Emily Griffith's 19th and Lincoln location. This session was a live streaming presentation by Doran Schrantz.
Doran Schrantz is executive director of ISAIAH, a faith-based community organization of 100 member congregations in Minnesota. Ms. Schrantz has transformed ISAIAH into one of the most powerful voices in Minnesota around issues of racial and economic justice. ISAIAH has explored the intersection of community organizing, policy and research and has launched powerful partnerships with national policy leaders. Ms. Schrantz will discuss how ISAIAH engages communities to develop solutions to health equity issues, and how other organizations and individuals can become part of such a movement.
This event shedded light on issues of race and economic justice that we all can relate to in one way or another. Ms. Schrantz is an delightful speaker and extremely knowledgable of getting ideas off the ground to becoming a reality for the community. Ms. Schrantz presentation delivery was realistic and inspirational to say the less.
Thank you Colorado Trust for giving us the opportunity to share this information with people of our community, and DAIC for partnering with us to make this event happen, and also to the individuals that came out to the event.
