Diversity Day

In 2010, NCBI’s EPIC, formerly Respect Club, NCBI's afterschool leadership develop program for 4th-12th grade students, decided that Missoula needed a day to celebrate all that makes the Garden City unique.  They created Diversity Day, and each year hundreds of Missoulians come together to show their commitment to making our city welcoming for all. 

Empowering youth leadership is central to the mission of NCBI Missoula.  Diversity Day offers a unique experience for local youth to get involved and have a voice in every facet of the event – planning, organizing, coordinating, and performing. The 7th Annual Diversity Day will be held at the Missoula Senior Center (705 S. Higgins Ave) on Saturday, April 16, 2016 from 6-10pm. The event will feature an eclectic mix of performances ranging from song, dance, video, and spoken word around the theme “Diverse City”. This year's headliner is MC Rhetoric and Yaz Like Jaws, respectively representing the Pueblo of Kewa and Blackfeet Nation, these MCs use their music to bring the struggle for social and environmental justice to the forefront of our consciousness. This celebration is a free, family-friendly event.  We hope to see you there!
