Reaching Victims with the Tribal Resource Tool

Dear Colleague:

We are currently collecting information about victim service providers to include in the Tribal Resource Tool, and we need your assistance.

Our team is working to identify any and all organizations that provide resources or support to American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) crime victims living on and off tribal lands, Alaska Native villages, and in urban areas. If your organization provides services to help American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) survivors recover from crime and abuse, please submit your information to be listed in the Tribal Resource Tool by visiting our website atwww.tribalresourcetool.org.

This web-based resource map and searchable database will:

  • Connect AI/AN survivors of crime and abuse to resources
  • Provide a listing of services available for AI/AN survivors of crime and abuse
  • Help identify and address gaps in services

The Tribal Resource Tool is an innovative collaboration between the Office for Victims of Crime, the National Congress of American Indians, the Tribal Law and Policy Institute, and the National Center for Victims of Crime with the input and guidance of tribal stakeholders across the country.

Help us engage others in this important project by sharing information widely and asking providers to fill out our inclusion form.

For additional information about the project, to request materials to help promote the tool, or to share outreach events where the project team can present the tool, contact Kaylana Gates atkgates@victimsofcrime.org. Please find sample Facebook and Twitter posts below.
