Webinar on the Intersection of Violence and Disability in Indian Country – 4/19

Exploring the Intersection of Violence and Disability in “Indian Country”: A Panel Discussion

Time: 2:00-3:30 pm EST
Host: Vera Institute of Justice Center on Victimization and Safety

04/19/2016

Over the last decade, great strides have been made to address violence against people with disabilities in communities across the country. However, less is known about violence against people with disabilities in American Indian or Alaskan Natives (AI/AN) communities. During this webinar, we will explore this intersection by bringing together disability and webinarsexual/domestic violence advocates working on tribal lands and within these communities. We will explore this unique intersection from a cultural perspective that recognizes the relationships that exist among federal, state, and the hundreds of sovereign tribal governments. Additional conversation will focus on how disability, anti-violence, culture, and sovereignty all merge to impact opportunities for meaningful trust building and collaboration to address these complex issues on tribal lands.
