Training Opportunity: April 19, 2022. The National Indigenous Women’s Resource Center (NIWRC) presents “Foundation and Key Principles: Strengthening the Role of Advocacy in Indian Country Workshop.”
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.
Key topics include basic advocacy skills, confidentiality and elements of shelter and other safe space. Advocates’ role in social change initiatives outside of shelter doors is also addressed. Discussion and interactive exercises are planned throughout this workshop.
