NIWRC Celebrates Domestic Violence Awareness Month at NCAI

October 15-19th, 2017 the National Indigenous Women’s Resource Center with StrongHearts Native Helpline, celebrated the 30th Anniversary of Domestic Violence Awareness Month at the National Congress of American Indians (NCAI) 74th Annual Convention and Marketplace conference in Milwaukee, WI.


NIWRC had a table display at the NCAI Market place where guests could contribute hand-written messages of wishes for DVAM on quilt squares, pick up the Oct. 2017 issue of Restoration Magazine and wear purple ribbons during the conference. NIWRC helped with the NCAI Task Force On Violence Against Native Women meeting and helped with collaborative organizing efforts for the entire NCAI audience of tribal leaders to participate a short video saying “Domestic Violence is not our tradition!”
