Women are Sacred (event)

June 10th – 12th, 2013 •  11th Women Are Sacred Conference. Native Women Reclaiming Our Space, Vision & Voices to Strengthen the Grassroots Advocacy Movement to End Violence Against Native Women.  http://www.niwrc.org/  The 11th Women are Sacred Conference is an affirmation of the strength of Native women who have persevered, many times in the face of utter despair and loss of life, to not merely survive, but also thrive. No longer will Native women be silenced or paralyzed. As Tillie Black Bear, grandmother of our movement gently reminds us, our work is about resistance and “making those connections beyond the shelter doors”. Now, more than ever, Native women and tribal sovereignty require that we look deep within ourselves and work meaningfully and respectfully with each other and our non-Native allies to promote healing and an end to violence against Native women. Strong tribal nations are built on the backs of women, so reclaiming our space, vision and voices.  LOCATION: Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, 11000 Broadway Blvd SE, Albuquerque, NM 87105.  CONTACT: 855.649.7299 (855.NIWRC99).  http://www.niwrc.org/resources/training-technical-assistance/women-are-sacred
