Tribal Advocates are the backbone of the response to end both domestic violence and sexual violence within their tribes. The work of the advocate will create the change we need in our communities.
Victoria Ybanez, Red Wind’s Executive Director

Each of the 40-hour advocate training will provide tribal advocates with a native-specific approach to providing advocacy that will strengthen their ability to work effectively with those they serve.
