1 min read

From Sept. 21-23, the Justice Department’s Office on Violence Against Women (OVW) hosted nearly 600 participants, including a record 55 Tribal leaders, for the 17th Annual Government-to-Government Violence Against Women Tribal Consultation.

Throughout the consultation, Tribal government leaders provided recommendations on administering Tribal funds and programs; enhancing the safety of Alaska Native and American Indian women from domestic and dating violence, sexual assault, homicide, stalking and sex trafficking, along with strengthening the federal response to these crimes; and improving access to local, regional, state and federal crime information databases and criminal justice information systems.

The consultation is required by law to address the federal administration of Tribal funds and programs established under the Violence Against Women Act of 1994 (VAWA) and its subsequent reauthorizations.
