In memoriam of 11 year old ASHLYNN MIKE and all other native victims who have gone missing or been murdered due to sexual and/or domestic violence.
We know that there are many organizations that are worthy and deserving of your attention this year, but we hope you will consider the NAAV when making your decision to donate. At the NAAV, we work hard to enhance the response to violence against Indian women. We are so thankful to be the unifying organization for Oklahoma's 25 tribal domestic violence and sexual assault programs.
A few of the ways we use your donation:
- The CIRCLE Project (our free legal program providing victims of abuse protective orders, divorce, child custody/support, legal advice, and victim's right issues)
-Programs that increase awareness of the crimes of domestic violence, sexual assault, dating violence, stalking and sex trafficking
-By providing free technical assistance & informational classes to coalition membership and tribal communities
Alone we are strong; Together we are stronger
DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AWARENESs month highlights
We wanted to take a moment to highlight all of the work that Oklahoma's domestic and sexual assault programs were able to accomplish during Domestic Violence Awareness Month. We believe that these tribal programs were able to show Oklahoma that we can unify to change a culture of violence, to one of respect.
