We have some exciting news about changes coming to our annual CSVANW Membership Program effective March 1, 2019. After careful evaluation, and our board of director’s approval, the Coalition has restructured membership into four tier levels to better support the growing needs of our members and the communities you serve. These new tiers are intended to ensure the maximum level of tailored training, education, technical assistance and community support from our coordinators to you.
In an ongoing effort to create a culture of transparency when considering dues increases, CSVANW evaluated funds allocated to our trusted community service providers. In 2018 CSVANW awarded nearly $18,000 in scholarships, sponsorships, and travel costs, with 70% earmarked for our members, to ensure our support of your important work. This included travel support for members for both state and national conferences and trainings.
Membership is open to individuals or organizations who are interested in providing culturally appropriate training and education of domestic violence and sexual assault in Tribal communities.
The CSVANW provides several services to its members including:
Federal and state grant application support and preparation assistance for Domestic Violence (DV) programming
Technical assistance and policy support to tribes and tribal DV and Sexual Assault programs located in our service areas
Travel scholarships to CSVANW trainings
Access to the CSVANW Resource Library and specialized inventory
Opportunities to network with other Native American DV service providers and advocates
Specialized DV curriculum that is culturally relevant
Specialized on-site training for tribal leadership and staff, free to member organizations/tribes
Native women summits and empowerment
Youth summits and leadership development
Specialized trainings that offer CEUs for tribal law enforcement officials
Join us, together we can do great things.
It’s true. Together we can help to shape policy, conduct outreach, increase awareness, inform priorities and work to ensure that our tribal communities are represented within conversations where we have historically been underrepresented.
