Thank you to everyone who attended the 3rd Annual Tribal Governments Program National Summit in Denver, CO!
The Summit focused on key issues and promising practices for Alaska Native Villages and Tribal Nations in addressing domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, stalking and sex trafficking; including methods and strategies to improve victim safety, offender accountability, and effective collaboration between tribal, federal, state governments and / or service providers.
Highlights of the Summit included Tribal Sovereignty as well as the issue of Missing and Murdered in Indian Country, with workshops on criminal justice and advocacy responses, responding to children and youth impacted by domestic and sexual violence, and engaging men in the work to end violence against women and children.
Summit materials and resources will be available to participants shortly – watch for an email with links to presentations and other information!
