Oklahoma’s tribal domestic violence and sexual assault COALITION | Tribal TechNical Assistance provider

 

June is LGBTq2+ Pride Month

 

According to the National Transgender Discrimination Survey, “transgender and gender non-conforming people face pervasive discrimination in virtually all aspects of their lives; yet the combination of anti-transgender bias and persistent structural and interpersonal acts of racism was especially devastating for American Indian and Alaskan Native transgender people and other people of color.”

HB 2091

Oklahoma HB2091 was introduced by Representative O'Donnell and co-sponsored by Senator Leewright seeking to amend current state legislation to add two tribal representatives to Oklahoma's Domestic Violence Fatality Review Board (DVFRB). This effort would not have been possible without the tremendous support of Rep. O'Donnell and was spear-headed through a collaborative effort by Muscogee (Creek) Nation Prosecutor Shelly Harrison, the Muscogee (Creek) Family Violence Prevention Program and the Native Alliance Against Violence. This legislation is being supported by tribes including resolutions from both the Inter-Tribal Council of the Five Tribes and the Muscogee (Creek) Nation's National Council. The bill unanimously passed the House and was passed by the Senate. The bill was signed and approved by the Governor on April 25, 2019.
