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.
Technical assistance (TA) services are tailored specifically to meet the needs of those requesting the service. TA sessions are provided with the assistance of partners and/or subject matter experts who serve as faculty. TA sessions are held onsite from 1- 2.5 days and are designed to be hands-on, practical and aimed at increasing the capacity to address and response to domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, sex trafficking and teen relationship violence (dating violence). TA sessions may involve a fee for the time and travel expenses of staff and faculty to develop and conduct the TA session.
Training services include a wide range of topics relating to domestic violence, sexual assault, stalking, sex trafficking and teen relationship violence. Trainings vary in length from a minimum of 4 hours to 1-3 days depending on the level of need and are provided with the assistance of partners and/or subject matter experts who serve as faculty. Trainings are interactive, culturally competent and based on best practices available. They are offered statewide, regionally or on-site and may involve a fee for expenses related to the time and travel of staff and faculty in developing and providing the training.
Due to COVID-19 pandemic, all trainings and TA requests will be provided virtually. Please contact SWIWC staff for more information.
