Foundation and Key Principles: Strengthening the Role of Advocacy in Indian Country Workshop
The foundation of advocates’ role in Indian Country is built upon the Indigenous understanding of 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 hosted by the National Indigenous Women’s Resource Center from July 25 to July 27, 2023, both in-person in Aurora, Colorado and virtually. The workshop will focus on the dynamics and impact of intimate partner violence, particularly on Native women. Key topics include basic advocacy skills, confidentiality, and elements of shelter and other safe spaces. There is also a special session on COVID-19 mitigation best practices and indoor air mitigation tools. There is a registration fee for participation.
