Restoring the Sacred Trails of Our Grandmothers:

Building a Legacy of Strategic Activism 

April 4 – April 6, 2017

Treasure Island Casino & Hotel, in Prarie Island, MN

Join us for our upcoming Restoring the Sacred Trails of Our Grandmothers: Building a Legacy of Strategic Activism  conference, which is a 2½ day event. 

We are very excited to be co-sponsoring this conference with the Sacred Hoop Coalition and Men As Peacemakers.  We are seeking workshops that offer an intersectional approach to anti-violence work.  Workshops that offer examples of strategic activism, help develop skills for effective advocacy and activism, and that address a spectrum of community members are preferred.  Examples might include workshops for engaging youth, elders, Two Spirit/Native LGBTQ, survivors with disabilities, and working with men and boys.  Workshops that are presented by or co-presented with youth are encouraged.

The conference runs from 9am on April 4 to Noon on April 6. On the first evening, April 4, we will be having a fun, themed, Self Care Carnival! On the second evening, April 5, we will be having a pow-wow to honor Survivors of domestic and sexual violence, women and children used in prostitution, and our missing and murdered sisters across Turtle Island.

Everyone has a role to play in fostering strategic activism to end sexual violence.  The intended audience includes advocates, law enforcement, medical professionals, chemical dependency programs, community members, elders, men, and various others working to end violence against American Indian and Alaska Native women and children.
