Mending the Sacred Hoop TA Project is pleased to announce our “Key Issues and Promising Practices” Webinar Series! Over the course of the next 8 months, MSH-TA will be offering webinar trainings on a variety of topics addressing violence against women in Native communities, including: Privacy and Confidentiality, Transitional Housing, Enforcing Tribal Protection Orders, and more.

Please join us in May for:

Walking Alongside Two-spirit Survivors of Violence and Trafficking – A Personal Healing Journey: Tuesday May 25, 2021 | 11:00 am CDT. Two-spirit youth are at high risk of violence and exploitation. They are also often overlooked and underserved in the systems meant to protect them. Through the lens of her personal story of being trafficked, Jessica Gidagaakoons Smith, a two-spirit survivor and legal scholar, will present her extensive research on the MMIWG2S epidemic and discuss ways that agencies can start implementing changes and educating advocates to better serve all survivors by being culturally supportive and inclusive. Presented by: Jessica Gidagaakoons Smith, Sovereign Bodies Institute.

And join us in June for:

Housing First – A Model for Transitional Housing: Wednesday, June 16, 2021 | 1:00 pm CDT. The Housing First model has been shown to be a highly effective approach to achieving permanent housing for chronically homeless individuals with serious mental illness and chemical dependency. The Housing First model is based on the presumption that helping people obtain stable housing before addressing other concerns makes dealing with these other issues easier, and the evidence has strongly supported this claim. There are many components of the model that lends itself toward achieving similar goals for homeless domestic violence survivors, survivors of sexual assault, and their children. Webinar participants will explore what housing first is and how it can serve as a strong model to providing transitional housing for victims of domestic violence, sexual violence, and stalking within their tribe. Presented by Victoria Ybanez, MPA, Executive Director of Red Wind Consulting, Inc.
