The Minnesota Indian Women’s Sexual Assault Coalition

KFAI’s Indian Uprising, June 15, 2008 from 7:00 – 8:00 p.m. CDT #270

Rape and Sexual Violence.  “Native American and Alaska Native women in
the United States suffer disproportionately high levels of rape and
sexual violence, yet the federal government has created substantial
barriers to accessing justice, Amnesty International asserted in a
113-page report, Maze of Injustice: The failure to protect Indigenous
women from sexual violence in the USA.  Justice Department figures
indicate that American Indian and Alaska Native women are 2.5 times
more likely to be raped or sexually assaulted than women in the United
States in general.” – www.amnestyusa.org

The Minnesota Indian Women’s Sexual Assault Coalition (www.miwsac.org)
is a unique Coalition funded in October of 2001, through the US
Department of Justice, Violence Against Women Office and is one of 16
Tribal Coalitions around the Country formed to address domestic and
sexual violence in American Indian Communities. The Coalition is the
only sexual assault coalition in the state of Minnesota that is
specific to American Indian Women.  Guests are:

Nicole Matthews (Ojibwe), Director, Minnesota Indian Women’s Sexual
Assault Coalition

Guadalupe Lopez (Ojibwe/Purepecha), Membership/ Outreach Coordinator, MIWSAC
