Along with honoring this year’s Award nominees and winners, NABA-DC will also hold a silent auction to raise funds for the Marine Toys for Tots Native American Program. This holiday season, many families across Indian Country are struggling financially. A portion of the funds raised will also benefit NABA-DC’s 2022 annual programming. Each year, NABA-DC hosts programs and events that focus on strengthening our community and providing education on issues impacting Indian Country.

The office of Fish & Richardson P.C. is graciously hosting the 2022 NABA-DC Holiday Party.
