Indigenous advocacy leadership to end intimate partner violence is reaffirmed during Domestic Violence Awareness Month. Indigenous cultures recognize the power, leadership, and expertise of women. Additionally, the leadership and expertise of survivors to end intimate partner violence need to be reaffirmed. This panel of elder indigenous advocates will discuss how women’s and survivors’ voices are necessary for guiding policy and the development of programs. Daily program practices should reflect the experiences of women and survivors. This conversation also addresses questions about forums for teaching, learning, and sharing. Is there an opportunity for teaching in programs and shelters? How do we do meaningful inclusive work?
