Join fellow advocates, American Indians Against Abuse (AIAA), and End Domestic Abuse WI (End Abuse) for this annual gathering. This training is designed for advocates of domestic abuse and sexual assault survivors.
August 14: The Oneida Nation of Wisconsin will offer the opening ceremony, followed by Corrine Sanchez of Tewa Women United, who will deliver the keynote training for the remainder of the day. Tewa Women United (TWU) is led by Native women concerned with the traumatic effects of colonization, religious inquisition, and militarization leading to issues such as alcoholism, suicide, domestic/sexual violence and environmental violence. TWU believes in strengthening and re-strengthening beloved families and communities to end violence against women, girls, and Mother Earth.
August 15: The training will include a variety of topics such as reflective supervision, healing from trauma, and gender based violence prevention, as well as opportunities for participants to guide conversations using Open Spaces – a method for self-organizing discussion tracks that allows groups of people to interact in a simple, productive, organized way to create valuable dialogues that address the participants’ most important issues.
Registration is open from June 24th through August 7. The$50 registration fee includes training materials, as well as breakfast and lunch for both days. AIAA may reimburse travel expenses for tribal program advocates.
