Improving Tribal Access to Victim Services: Lessons from National, State, and Tribal Perspectives
3:00 – 4:30 pm (ET) [90 minute webinar]
With high rates of crime and victimization, tribal communities suffer disproportionately from the long-lasting and multi-generational impacts of exposure to violence. By restoring tribal court jurisdiction over non-Indians who commit acts of dating and domestic violence on tribal lands, the 2013 reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) renewed the focus on domestic violence in Indian country and the needs of tribal victims.
Improving Tribal Access to Victim Services: Lessons from National, State, and Tribal Perspectives will highlight practical approaches to ensuring tribal access to victims funding, compensation, and services. In addition, this webinar will highlight collaborative state, local, and tribal efforts aimed at providing a variety of services to meet the needs of tribal victims.
