Trauma-Informed Advocacy in the Time of a Pandemic
The world has changed, and ways of life have been put on hold. These are truly trying and difficult times for so many people. Tribal domestic violence advocates are struggling to find their footing and respond as best they can under the circumstances, given the lack of resources and tribal infrastructures as well as an increase in domestic violence. Indigenous people and Tribal Nations experience multiple levels of trauma, including Historical Trauma. All this contributes to the response to the current pandemic.
