Description: Native American women suffer intimate partner violence at epidemic rates. Federal law enforcement may be hours away from reservation crime scenes and resources are stretched thin. Tribal police, prosecutors, and courts have had significant success in combating crimes of domestic violence committed by Indians in Indian country. But, without Congressional action, tribes lacked the authority to prosecute a non-Indian. Two new Acts, the Tribal Law and Order Act of 2010 (TLOA) and the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2013 (VAWA 2013), have dramatically changed the legal authority of tribal courts and have provided federal prosecutors with new criminal offenses to use in the effort to hold abusers in Indian country accountable. This webinar will feature discussion on protection orders, TLOA, VAWA 2013 and ways communities can enhance the safety of Native American women.
Audience: Attorneys, Advocates, Law Enforcement and Court Personnel
