We will create space to reflect on how we can decolonize our own individual practices to make change for our communities by weaving together our collective wisdom to end gender-based violence.  Presenters: Nicole Matthews, Executive Director and Guadalupe Lopez, Elevate|Uplift Program Coordinator, Minnesota Indian Women’s Sexual Assault Coalition.

Sexual Assault in Intimate Partner Relationships: Tuesday April 27, 2021 | 11:00 am CDT. More than 35% of women and 30% of men report sexual violence, physical violence or stalking by an intimate partner at some point in their lives. In American Indian/Alaska Native populations, that number nearly doubles. In this session, we will discuss the prevalence of intimate partner sexual assault, the challenges associated with reporting and the specific healthcare and safety needs that should be addressed for these individuals. Presented by: Jennifer Pierce-Weeks, RN, SANE-A, SANE-P, Chief Executive Officer for the International Association of Forensic Nurses (IAFN).

Systems Advocacy Responses for Housing Webinar: Red Wind Consulting

April 8 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Advocates struggle with a lack of available and affordable housing in tribal communities, while survivors face barriers getting their housing applications approved. Federal funds have just been released to tribes and tribal housing authorities to respond to the Covid-19 pandemic. These funds can be used for system-level changes, including tribal housing development and improvements. We know that Covid-19 and "stay at home" orders have created additional dangers for victims and increased the need for safe housing to flee from violence. This webinar will help brainstorm ideas, and give specific examples from other tribal communities. Presenters will review approaches for educating and advocating for short and long-term system responses to meet the needs of survivors. You’ll hear about new resources, tools, and ongoing technical assistance available to make these system level changes realistically manageable.
