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.

We are honored to invite your participation in the 15th annual Government-to-Government Violence Against Women Tribal Consultation, through four afternoon sessions conducted online via a virtual platform. OVW’s purpose 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.

We will reassess in January whether a face to face conference in the spring is possible and update the website at that time.
