40-Hour Sexual Assault Advocacy Training
Our Native-focused, 40-Hour Sexual Assault Advocacy Curriculum was created by Native women experts in the field. It is designed for Tribal communities, and non-Native service providers working with and for Native people who have been impacted by sexual violence.
The goal of this Native-focused curriculum is to provide new and seasoned advocates with knowledge and skills they need to provide culturally responsive, survivor-centered advocacy for victims/survivors of sexual violence.
This curriculum meets the requirements of the State of Minnesota, Statute 595.02 to ensure communication between advocates and victims of sexual assault is considered privileged information.
This curriculum may also be used for Tribal advocates in states other than Minnesota.
Survivors of sexual violence cannot be blamed for the trauma and pain inflicted upon them. As a community, we must educate ourselves and rise up to hold harm-doers accountable and interrupt all forms of violence.
