  3. Fall Social Justice Series: Abigail Eiler »

    November 20, 2017 - 12:00pm to 2:00pm

    We Are Destined for Greatness: The History and Resiliency of North American Indian People

    Presented by: Abigail Eiler, SSW LEO Lecturer

    North American Indian (NAI) people are original proprietors to exist on the land we currently refer to as The University of Michigan. As we enter National Native American Heritage Month, we honor the six tribes that offered this land as a gift for education purposes. This Social Justice Series, "We Are Destined for Greatness: The History and Resiliency of North American Indian People," offers an opportunity for social workers and supporters to better understand tribal and urban Indian communities.

    Some of the most common news headlines that we read about or see today depict Native American people in a derogatory or mythological fashion. We hear about the outcomes of national sporting events for the Washington Redskins, Cleveland Indians, Florida Seminoles and many more. NAI people have also been represented as violent and uneducated protesters, "impeding progress" for the Dakota and Mackinac Straits (Line 5) oil pipelines. As the creators of peacemaking principles, the representation of NAI people that we see today is an injustice and misrepresentation of urban Indian communities and tribal citizens across North America. Come join presenters, Abigail Eiler, LMSW (Niigaanii gimaakwe) and Rachel Burrage, MSW, PhD Candidate as they discuss:

    Traditional gender relations and (variety of) traditional parenting styles

    Domestic violence, residential schools as disruption of traditional family values

    Current efforts to promote traditional gender roles, parenting, promote resilience among NAI families

    Lunch will be provided.

  9. Marching Forward: Congressman John Lewis Keynote Presentation »

    November 27, 2017 - 7:00pm to 9:30pm

    Congressman John Lewis, Andrew Aydin and Nate Powell, co-authors of the graphic novel trilogy MARCH, will give a keynote presentation that included a Q&A and book-signing. March powerfully recounts Lewis's experiences throughout the Civil Rights Movement and has won many awards, including the National Book Award.

    This free and public event will be live-streamed and recorded and will offer open seating on a first come, first serve basis (i.e., there will be no tickets).

    John Lewis is a civil rights leader and an American politician, serving Georgia's 5th district since 1987. A member of the Democratic party leadership, Lewis has served as Senior Chief Deputy Whip since 2003. Born the son of Alabama sharecroppers, Lewis's childhood was filled with deeply inspirational moments, including the Montgomery Bus Boycott and the words of the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. heard on radio broadcasts. As a college student, Lewis's inspiration fueled his commitment to end legalized racial segregation; he was chairman of the Student Nonviolent Coordinating Committee (SNCC) and was one of the "Big Six" leaders of groups who organized the 1963 March on Washington. His dedication to the highest ethical standards and moral principles has won Lewis the admiration of his colleagues on both sides of the aisle in the United States Congress. Lewis has dedicated his life to protecting human rights, securing civil liberties, and building what he calls "The Beloved Community" in America. Lewis co-wrote his story with his then-Congressional Aid, now Digital Director and Policy Advisor, Andrew Aydin, in the form of the graphic novel trilogy, MARCH (2013). The collaborative work is illustrated by New York Times best-selling graphic novelist Nate Powell.
