From the National Indigenous Women’s Resource Center (NIWRC) newsletter:

January is National Stalking Awareness Month & Human Trafficking Awareness Month

As Native women in the United States experience some of the highest rates of violent victimization for stalking and sex trafficking, the National Indigenous Women’s Resource Center (NIWRC) strongly supports the efforts to raise awareness of these crimes and offer resources to support survivors. Throughout the month of January, please visit our social media pages and sign up for our mailing list to explore resources on both stalking and human trafficking to advocate for victims in our communities.

The National Indigenous Women’s Resource Center, Inc. (NIWRC) is a Native-led nonprofit organization dedicated to ending violence against Native women and children. The NIWRC provides national leadership in ending gender-based violence in tribal communities by lifting up the collective voices of grassroots advocates and offering culturally grounded resources, technical assistance and training, and policy development to strengthen tribal sovereignty. 

They provide technical assistance and training, resources for tribes and advocates, undertake policy development work and offer advocacy opportunities. Connect with them to stay informed on issues impacting Indigenous women.
