The 6th Annual Tribal Leaders Summit is a free briefing for tribal, state and federal officials and those who work with victims of sexual assault and domestic violence. The summit also provides educational opportunities for tribal leaders to be updated and briefed about the tribal provisions of the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA), the Tribal Law and Order Act (TLOA), and the current jurisdictional challenges faced in New Mexico. The updates and information become more important as the TLOA are up for congressional reauthorization.
This two-day summit on March 20 – 21, 2019 also focuses on sharing field expertise, promising practices and fostering conversations that seek to increase the public safety of our Native women and children.
Badges will be required for luncheons.
