Join us for Calling an Awareness to Action: Examining the Intersection of Stalking, Trafficking and the MMIW Crisis Facing Alaska Natives on January 25th @ 11am-12:30pm AK time.
A recent federal Government Accountability Office report confirms the high rates of violence against Indigenous women is a crisis in the United States. Indigenous women are disproportionately affected by stalking, where one out of two Native women have been stalked in their lifetime. Each year, thousands become victims of human trafficking. However, Indigenous women and Native LGBTQ2S relatives are especially at risk of human trafficking and sex trafficking compared to other populations. These crimes are part of the larger spectrum of violence perpetrated against Indigenous women, creating a social climate that allows the crisis of missing and murdered Indigenous women to continue. This virtual panel will examine the intersection of stalking, trafficking and the MMIW crisis in Alaska.

This is a two part event. The first part is “Sexual assault: High rates in Alaska require multi-level and immediate response”. This informational session is provided by the Alaska Native Women’s Resource Center. After this presentation we will take a short break and then start the second part. The second part of this event is a self-defense and awareness workshop provided by Stephanie Nayen of Legacy Jiu Jitsu.
This event combines empowering information on how to keep ourselves and families safe. ANWRC and Stephanie will share resources, how to learn about red flags and what to do when you see them, + more!
Note: While the intention of this event is to better equipt and prevent violence, we recognize that the topic of sexual assault can be triggering. We will provide external information for support at the event in case that is needed.
Co-hosts (alphabetically): MMIWG2S Alaska: Alaska Native Heritage Center, Alaska Native Women’s Resource Center, Data for Indigenous Justice, Native Movement, Native Peoples Action/Native Peoples Action Community Fund in Partnership Legacy Jiu Jitsu.
