As many of us are aware, Indigenous populations face higher rates of crime victimization than any other minority group in the country (Department of Justice). Further, our communities are affected by diverse geographical barriers and unclear jurisdiction and service area boundaries.
In responding to these grave concerns, ICVSRRC has begun providing services to support Tribal and Urban service providers in provision of services to Indigenous victims of crime, related to domestic violence sexual assault, stalking, strangulation, sex-trafficking, dating violence, homicide, child sexual assault, missing Indian Women and identity theft and cyber crimes. Our role includes:
- Advocating on behalf of victims obtaining needed services, making referral(s) and connecting to appropriate resources.
- Assisting tribal communities and urban service providers in planning and implementing services for Indigenous Victims.
- Collaborating and to serve as a Liaison with local and state government agencies in providing tribal – specific practices, culture, priorities, etc., that impact policies and services for Indigenous victims.
- Working with our Tribal communities to increase the identification, assessment and appropriate response, referral and resource collaboration and facilitation to Native victims of crime in Tribal, urban and rural areas.
