#GivingTuesday & How You can help

 
 
 

Contributions to the Native Alliance Against Violence (NAAV) are important!

Read on to find out how this donation will benefit your community.

The NAAV provides essential services to many different people throughout Oklahoma. These services are often geared towards the tribal domestic and sexual violence programs, but they can also be utilized by law enforcement agencies and by the general public.

Here are some of the ways that the NAAV provides essential services to the community.


1. Training Opportunities (Just a small sample)

One of the ways that NAAV provides support to end violence in Native American communities is through training opportunities. We create and gather information for these trainings. Sometimes we work alone to create these trainings, and sometimes we collaborate with field experts.

How You Can Help

Bringing awareness to the issue of violence in our Native communities is something that everyone can contribute to.

One easy way to do this is interacting and participating in any community events or programs that provide domestic violence awareness. The NAAV Events page is a good resource to view events happening near you. Many of these events provide valuable information about the causes and remedies to violence in Native communities. 

You can also contribute to the discussion online. Just think of how many people you are connected to. You can make a difference by following the NAAV social media pages and sharing any important information to your friends and family.

Providing your time and resources can be just as valuable as any monetary donation. If you want to volunteer your services or supplies, get in touch with these tribal programs that provide shelter to domestic violence victims. To check out all of the tribal programs we serve, click here.
