The National Indigenous Women’s Resource Center is searching for the next wave of Advocates and Advocate Shift Leads to help expand the StrongHearts Native Helpline team. Trained with a strong understanding of Native cultures and traditions, StrongHearts advocates provide culturally-appropriate, one-on-one support to callers affected by domestic violence and dating violence. As a national helpline, the StrongHearts Native Helpline (1-844-7NATIVE) offers confidential, anonymous and healing space for Native Americans to reach out for help and resources. To view the job announcements, visit the StrongHearts website at www.strongheartshelpline.org/about. Please share with your networks to help us spread the word!
