The National Indigenous Women’s Resource Center lists safe, affordable, accessible, and stable housing as one of the most pressing concerns for Native domestic abuse survivors, both on and off the reservation. The lack of housing increases the likelihood of a survivor being drawn into sex trafficking. It can also be the reason someone chooses to stay in an abusive situation. We’ll hear about what’s being done to make housing accessible to survivors broadcasting live from the Women Are Sacred conference.
