NATIONAL SEX TRAFFICKING PROJECT
The National Training and Technical Assistance Project on Sex Trafficking in Indian Country and Alaska project provides comprehensive training and technical assistance to strengthen sovereign responses, awareness, intervention, and prevention vital to increasing safety and support for trafficking survivors and expands efforts to address the evolving issues of sex trafficking across Tribal communities.
This project prioritizes responses to emerging issues and gaps in services identified by Survivors and service providers. This project helps equip tribes, programs, and agencies with tools necessary to ensure trafficking Survivors receive services they need without being criminalized for the violence they have experienced.
Staff engages with and supports anti-trafficking organizations; Tribal domestic and sexual violence programs; social services that may come in contact with Survivors of sexual violence, domestic violence, and/or sex trafficking; and other agencies including law enforcement, prosecutors, judges, court staff, corrections officers, tribal enterprises, chemical dependency programs, cultural community programs that Native Survivors may come in contact with, and the broader tribal community.
In addition, MIWSAC hosts a National Native Sex Trafficking Conference, Strengthening Sovereign Responses to Sex Trafficking in Indian Country and Alaska (2018, 2020, 2023 upcoming 2024). This project is supported by the Office on Violence Against Women.
