The National Indigenous Women’s Resource Center provides culturally specific technical assistance, training, and policy development for tribes, tribal programs, and advocates to help establish and strengthen their responses to violence against Native women. This includes highly specialized and culturally specific training, advocacy, and programmatic and policy development in the areas of domestic violence, sexual violence, missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls, stalking, and sex trafficking.
Our primary goals are to support the sovereignty of tribes and the development of Tribal programs and advocates as they build capacity in serving and advocating for American Indian, Alaska Native, and Native Hawaiian victim-survivors of violence in their communities. NIWRC can also connect tribes and advocates to regional Tribal coalitions, Native organizations, and trained consultants throughout our network.
