Protect The Sacred Healing Justice Workshops
With little to no resources to combat against the ongoing violence against Native communities, oftentimes small grassroots organizations take it upon themselves to find the proactive solutions in order to create a healthier and sustainable future for the upcoming youth. We have been fortunate enough to receive sex trafficking prevention training from the Set Me Free Project. The Set Me Free Project offers sex trafficking prevention grades K-12 so that no child or adult is left behind. In completing this training, we are able to teach our communities about what sex trafficking is, what sex traffickers look like, and other important topics such as healthy relationships, consent, and social media awareness.
In addition, our #MMIR Director has also received training from the Malikah organization to become a Chapter Lead. Malikah are a collective of Black and Brown women trainers, organizers, and facilitators building power for themselves and within their communities. Training consisted of healing justice, financial literacy, self-defense, and fighting against oppressive systems through effective organizing.
We are thrilled to have received training and anticipate good outcomes for our Native communities who receive a combination of both trainings through our culturally-relevant workshops. Workshops will be tailored for Native women and girls, but anticipate to see future funding to expand our capacity to two-spirit led workshops and men and boys workshops as well.
We would like to thank Movement Voter Fund for helping us to be able to participate in these trainings. To our partners at The Set Me Free Project and Malikah, we are forever grateful for your knowledge and trainings to help educate and sustain our Native communities.
