THE NATIVE ALLIANCE AGAINST VIOLENCE BRINGS ATTENTION TO SEX TRAFFICKING AND STALKING

Alarmingly high statistics show that too many American Indian women have been subjected to sexual violence and stalking in their lifetime

NORMAN – January is the National Human Trafficking Prevention Month and Stalking Awareness Month. The Native Alliance Against Violence is providing tribal domestic and sexual assault programs with an infographic that illustrates the basics of sex trafficking and stalking.

 “Sex trafficking and stalking in Indian country needs to be addressed,” said Dawn Stover, Executive Director of the Native Alliance Against Violence. “The statistics show that a disproportionate amount of American Indian women are subjected to sex trafficking and stalking. Unfortunately, we rarely hear about this on the news”.

 “Now is the time to stand up and make your voice heard. You can do this by sharing the infographic and helping us bring awareness to this issue. We want to make it clear that we are here to fight for the safety of Native women and girls,” said Stover.
