Participants Needed For Phoenix Area Native Focus Group on Tribal Victim Services

The Tribal Law and Policy Institute, in conjunction with the National Center for Victims of Crime (NCVC), and the Office for Victims of Crime (OVC), is working on a Tribal Resource Mapping Project for American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) victims/survivors of crime.

Your Expertise
We are seeking participation from urban Indian individuals that have experience in the following categories of organizations—either as professional staff or clients.

  • Homeless Services
  • Native Youth Services
  • Two-Spirit Programs or Services
  • Native Education Programs
  • Native Health Services
  • Victim Advocates Groups or Services
  • Native Men’s Groups or Programs
  • Native Women’s Group or Programs
  • Native Foster Services or Programs
  • Urban-Indian Programs or Services

First 20 participants to successfully sign up will receive a $40 stipend for their participation. (stipends will be mailed after the focus group)

We are having an urban Indian focus group in Phoenix to gather input for the Tribal Resource Mapping Project

Date: October 10, 2016
Location:  Room 352
Sandra Day O’Connor College of Law
111 E. Taylor Street
Phoenix, AZ
Time: 2:30 – 4:30 pm

Our Goal
To create a web-based resource mapping tool that:

  • Links AI/AN victims/survivors of crime and abuse to tribal
    victim services anywhere in the country
  • Helps identify gaps in the network of existing services

Our Plan
We’ve been working with tribal stakeholders to develop the resource mapping tool and identify victim/survivor services available to AI/AN people. We will use the information gathered from stakeholders to develop an online resource mapping tool.

Because the needs of urban Indians are so unique, and the physical distance between them and their main tribal community can be quite large, we want to seek focused input from urban Indians to make sure the Tribal Resource Mapping Project will produce a mapping tool that meets their needs.
