Ti Novitawi Kocheukaakwe Virtual Conference Honoring Missing & Murdered Indigenous People
October 6 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm PDT
October is National Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Join the Idaho Coalition Against Sexual & Domestic Violence and our partners during the Ti Novitawi Kocheukaakwe Virtual Conference Honoring Missing & Murdered Indigenous People. Our goal is to address violence, protection, justice, and wellness within Indigenous communities. We will explore adequate response and prevention measures, narrative shifts when working with Indigenous communities, and increase public awareness. The Idaho Coalition Against Sexual & Domestic Violence intentionally centers the voices of past and present Indigenous advocates and educators currently working to end violence in Indian Country.
