Mission

It is the mission of the First Nations Women’s Alliance to strengthen our Tribal communities by creating a forum for leaders to come together to address the issues of domestic violence and sexual assault. We are committed to ending all forms of violence by providing culturally relevant services and resources and facilitating the provision of those services by others in our communities.

History

First Nations Women’s Alliance was created from the “Native American Domestic Violence Forum.” The Forum began in 1996 as a committee of the North Dakota Council on Abused Women’s Services (NDCAWS) in order to more effectively respond to the needs and concerns of North Dakota domestic violence/sexual assault programs serving Native American communities. In 2007, First Nations Women’s Alliance (FNWA) obtained federal funding for the formation of a tribal

coalition, and subsequently obtained a 501 (c) 3 status in 2008.  The Board of Directors is made up of the program directors of each of the reservation based programs and two at large members.
