Join National Indigenous Women’s Resource Center for Foundation and Key Principles: Strengthening the Role of Advocacy in Indian Country Workshop. Tue, Apr 19 – Thu, Apr 21 2022, All day Register here: https://bit.ly/3q0MZct
You may register to attend this 3-day workshop in person or virtually. Health and safety are NIWRC’s priorities! The foundation of advocates’ role in Indian Country is built upon our Indigenous understanding of our relationships and roles as Relatives in the context of historical and ongoing dynamics of colonization.
The key principles of advocacy come from Indigenous cultural beliefs and values, and encompass concepts of resilience, trauma-informed approaches, and sovereignty. These are the themes of this workshop with a focus on the dynamics and impact of battering/intimate partner violence, particularly on Native women.
