NIWRC Postpones Advocacy Workshop Due to Coronavirus

After thoughtful consideration and closely monitoring restrictions and developments related to the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, the National Indigenous Women’s Resource Center will postpone the Advocacy Workshop - Foundation and Key Principles: Strengthening the Role of Advocacy in Indian Country (April 21-23, 2020) in Albuquerque, NM. This workshop will be rescheduled for a later date, which will be shared as soon as possible.

Our staff looks forward to hosting this workshop, which will still be held in Albuquerque, NM. All registered attendees will be given the option of receiving a registration refund or carrying their registration over to the postponed workshop date. If you are registered for this workshop, you will receive instructions on this process once a new date is determined in the next few weeks.

Update on 2020 Women Are Sacred Conference

NIWRC is actively monitoring the COVID-19 situation as it may affect our 2020 Women Are Sacred Conference in Saint Paul, MN, this June. Our primary concern is the health and wellbeing of our community members and those we serve, and we are taking all health recommendations, travel advisories and concerns related to large gatherings seriously. 

As we carefully move forward in our planning, we will continue to gather input on the current situation and are exploring alternative options for hosting the conference as necessary. NIWRC will make a final decision about the 2020 Women Are Sacred Conference by April 1, 2020, after which we will share information as soon as possible. Should this plan change, we will send out additional updates immediately. NIWRC staff are available to answer any questions or concerns related to Women Are Sacred at [email protected].

Thank you for your patience and support as we make these decisions one step at a time. Our thoughts and prayers are with all of our relatives. Please stay healthy and take good care of yourself and your families.
