The Southwest Indigenous Women’s Coalition (SWIWC) is a statewide tribal domestic violence (DV) and sexual assault (SA) coalition serving the Tribes in Arizona. Primarily through training and technical assistance, SWIWC works to increase the capacity of tribal communities to better address and respond to the domestic and sexual violence occurring in their communities. SWIWC also works at a systemic level to increase the safety, justice and healing of any person that has been a victim of domestic and/or sexual violence.

SWIWC is funded under a grant from the Office on Violence Against Women, Department of Justice.  Currently, SWIWC has a staff of four, operates via virtual offices and a sub-office in Chinle, Arizona.
