10:30 a.m.-12:00 p.m. ET. Sponsored by National Institute of Justice (NIJ) & The United States Department of Justice (DOJ).
This seminar provides the first set of estimates from a national large-scale survey of violence against women and men who identified themselves as American Indian or Alaska Native using detailed behaviorally specific questions on psychological aggression, coercive control and entrapment, physical violence, stalking, and sexual violence. These results are expected to raise awareness and understanding of violence experienced by American Indian and Alaska Native people.Following the presentation, Bea Hanson of the Office on Violence Against Women, Joye Frost of the Office for Victims of Crime, and Carrie Bettinger-Lopez of the White House will discuss the policy and practice implications of the study; and highlight the need for additional services that are needed for American Indian and Alaska Native victims of crime.
