Description

The mission of Clan Star is devoted to improving justice to strengthen the sovereignty of Indigenous women through legal, legislative and policy initiatives, and, education and awareness. Clan Star provides technical assistance, training and consultation to Indian Tribes and organizations in the development of public policy strategies addressing violence against women. CSI is a technical assistance provider to recipients of the OVW’s Tribal Domestic Violence & Sexual Assault Coalitions grant program. Technical assistance is designed to increase organizational capacity to address the unmet needs of American Indian and Alaska Native women by supporting the development of the leadership and/or organizational membership to effect social change and systemic reform in response to violence against Indian women. Clan Star’s technical assistance has specialized focus on the intersection of federal, tribal and state laws as those laws impact American Indian victims of domestic violence and sexual assault.
