Tribal Coalitions Chapter from the 2016 Biennial Report to Congress
Read about program accomplishments from July 2013 - June 2015 and hear from grantees in their own words.
The Coalition’s grant funding allows tribal domestic violence advocates to receive training that is focused on being Native-specific. Every training that the Sacred Hoop Coalition provides is built around the reality of Native victims, and instead of being a special topic covered at a mainstream domestic violence training, it is at the core of the training. Advocates can feel free in this environment to discuss what is happening within their tribal communities without fear of judgment or misunderstanding. This allows coalition members to receive the help and service that they need in order to create safe and accessible
programs for Native victims of domestic violence.
