CSVANW focuses its efforts on domestic violence, sexual violence, sex trafficking, child abuse and neglect, and teen dating violence. Violence is often interconnected and can be seen as a symptom of larger systemic social problems within our families and our communities. Addressing the social challenges faced by our Native women and children is only possible through the destruction of silos and the forging of strong partnerships between organizations and individuals across our communities.
Our grounding in the movement to end violence is not only to organize, but to mobilize our communities towards healthier families and healthier communities. The voices of our communities, and the strengths of our women and children, shape our priorities, approach and the solutions to violence.
As a tribal coalition, CSVANW does not provide emergency or direct services. While the Coalition does not provide aid or services, here are some links below for resources and for those new to the field and those trying to find information about the different types of violence.
