The 15th Annual Government-to-Government Violence Against Women Tribal Consultation

The Mission of the Office on Violence Against Women (OVW), a component of the United States Department of Justice, is to provide federal leadership in developing the national capacity to reduce violence against women and administer justice for and strengthen services to victims of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking.

Pursuant to 34 U.S.C. § 20126, the purpose of the violence against women tribal consultation is to solicit recommendations from tribal leaders on the following three topics:
  • Enhancing the safety of American Indian and Alaska Native women from domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, stalking, and sex trafficking;
  • Strengthening the federal response to the crimes of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, stalking, and sex trafficking; and,
  • Administering funds and programs for tribal governments established by the 1994 Violence Against Women Act and subsequent legislation.
