Join us to honor Domestic Violence Awareness Month by attending the 5th Annual American Indian Domestic Violence Awareness Day of Unity in Seminole, OK.
*This event is FREE and open to the public!*
This year's event will be hosted by The Seminole Nation Domestic Violence Program, and theme of the event will be: "Unify to Change a Culture of Violence to One of Respect". We are asking everyone that posts about Domestic Violence Awareness Month to use the hashtag, #Unify2Change, to create extra awareness and buzz around this important issue plaguing the American Indian community.
The event will have a culturally specific introduction, speakers, and display tables featuring Oklahoma's tribal domestic violence and sexual assault programs giving out information on services.

Advocate Appreciation Dinner- Donation Drive
The NAAV proposes to invite Oklahoma's tribal advocates to an evening event that will include a meal, appreciation gifts and entertainment. This event will show the tribal advocates they are not alone while working difficult cases and provide them with a night of relaxation and support. We will be recognizing all of the unique and amazing work they are providing for the Native American community.
