TRIBAL RESOURCES TO END VIOLENCE AGAINST NATIVE WOMEN

The Strengthening Tribal Response to Violence Against Native Women Initiative provides training, technical assistance and resources for tribal governments and programs that do not currently have Office on Violence Against Women (OVW) grant funding. The goal of initiative is to enhance victim services and assist tribal criminal justice systems to more effectively address victim safety and offender accountability.

 

Initiative partners are available to provide training, technical assistance, and resources to strengthen the response of tribal governments to (1) effectively address sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence and stalking and to (2) uphold victim safety and offender accountability, including:

 

The Initiative is led by the Tribal Law and Policy Institute in collaboration with three project partners.
