We Are All Related: Importance of Braiding Innovation, Cultural Traditions, and Sovereignty into Advocacy Approaches
The Advocacy Training was a tribal-specific training for NCAI Fund Victim Services Micro-grant Program grantees. The training was oriented around the National Indigenous Women’s Resource Center (NIWRC) Advocacy Curriculum. This Curriculum provides comprehensive, basic information and was created to support tribal programs in their efforts to provide advocacy and safety for survivors within their communities and make changes to end violence by embracing Indigenous culture.
The Advocacy Training focused on advocacy basics, dynamics and tactics of battering/intimate partner violence, overview of the role of advocates, the impacts and effects of historical trauma, basic safety planning, and Coordinated Community Response/Sexual Assault Response Team models.
