    The Coalition to Stop Violence Against Native Women, Inc. (CSVANW) began as a grassroots initiative in 1996 to bring together Native advocates working in Indian communities in New Mexico, who provide assistance and support to Native women that have been battered or sexually assaulted.

    Its roots began with three Native women in New Mexico, “Victim Advocates:, who came together and began dialogue around the issues of violence against native women and what was being done to address these comes. News spread of the formation of a support group for those working in the field of domestic violence and sexual assault in Indian Country and the formation of united voice for victims. Native advocates representing programs in Indian Country, as well as, individual advocates not affiliated with any program, soon joined this collaborative group.

    The Coalition to Stop Violence Against Native Women, Inc. became incorporated as a Non-Profit organization in December 2000. The Coalition provides a forum for support, organizing, sharing of information and resources, and networking opportunities for its members and collaborative partners working to end violence against Native women.

    The Coalition has provided training on Advocacy, Coordinated Community Response to Domestic Violence, Effects of Domestic Violence on children, Laws on Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault and other topics related to Violence Against Indian Women. In a collaborative effort, the Coalition has provided training for tribal law enforcement, victim advocates, tribal court personnel and traditional officers from various tribes to enhance their skills and knowledge in addressing the se crimes against our Native people.
