Invitation to the OVW Annual Tribal Consultation on Violence Against Women

The Department of Justice Office on Violence Against Women (OVW) invites Tribal Leaders to join the 2016 Annual Government-to-Government Violence Against Women Tribal Consultation.  The purpose of this consultation is to solicit recommendations on enhancing safety for American Indian and Alaska Native women, strengthening the Federal response to the crimes of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, stalking, and sex trafficking, and administering grant funds.
