Description

Join us for the Impact Investing Day opening reception at the Travois headquarters in the heart of metro Kansas City in the Crossroads Arts District. Without justice and community consent, investing is hollow and misguided. On the evening of April 30th, from 6-8pm, you will hear stories about water protection and ending the global water crisis from leaders have who have inspired communities to act and as a result, leveraged new and diverse sources of capital investment. We will start this dynamic dialogue with a message from Congresswoman Sharice Davids (Kansas-03) followed by the keynote speakers:

Dave Archambault II, 45th Chairman of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe. In 2016 Dave emerged as a global leader for indigenous rights when he led his Nation’s opposition to the construction of the Dakota Access Oil Pipeline.

Charlie Soap, film producer, Navy veteran and activist dedicated to strengthening the communities of the Cherokee Nation with his wife of 30 years, Wilma Mankiller, former Principal Chief of the Cherokee Nation.

Gary White co-founder of Water.org and WaterEquity with actor Matt Damon. Gary dedicated his life's work to ending the global water crisis and as CEO, Gary supports financial enterprises that finance or provide water and sanitation.

Register now as space is limited and the first attendees will receive a copy of 'the Cherokee Word for Water' film DVD co-directed by Charlie Soap.

Travois First Fridays featured artist, Holly Wilson, will also share her exhibition series, 'Below the Surface.' Kansas City Indian Center Executive Director, Gaylene Crouser, will give the opening recognition and Kansas City-based Amado Espinoza will perform contemporary Indigenous music.

Thank you to our opening reception sponsors.
