LGBTQ2S Policies and Practices for Tribal Domestic Violence Programs and Shelters

June 2021

Recording from National Indigenous Women’s Resource Center (NIWRC)


“Within the LGBTQ community, intimate partner violence occurs at a rate equal to or even higher than that of the heterosexual community. In addition, LGBTQ individuals may experience other forms of domestic violence and additional barriers to seeking help due to fear of discrimination or bias. Although the response to LGBTQ victims of domestic violence is gradually improving, there is still much work to be done. Please join us for this important webinar to learn how the Southwest Indigenous Women’s Coalition (SWIWC) is working to improve the tribal response to LGBTQ victim/survivors for tribal domestic violence programs and shelters.”
