6TH ANNUAL DOMESTIC VIOLENCE SYMPOSIUM
The Sacred Hoop Coalition’s 6th annual domestic violence symposium is right around the corner! The symposium is a great opportunity to discuss emerging trends and issues. As well as strategize how to make our communities and programs safe and accessible to Native survivors of domestic violence. For those of you that are new to the field this a great place to network and build a working support circle for you and your organization.
This year’s symposium will focus on Healing Generations in the efforts to end the cycle of violence in our families and communities. At this year’s symposium we will be looking at root causes of intergenerational trauma and lateral violence and the impacts they have on tribal communities. While proactively working toward restorative measures rooted in our cultural teachings, developing new advocate training and tools to cope with vicarious trauma. There will be opportunity to learn, network, provide feedback and help the coalition develop new materials. How do we as tribal programs unite and further the movement to end violence against Native people?
