Funded by the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA), Office of Justice Services, the 'Indian Country Victim Assistance Training Program' National Focus Group Webinar will be held on August 10, 2017 at 12:00 p.m. (MST). The purpose of the national focus group is to gain input from Tribal Victim Advocates (TVA) and other stakeholders about participant's experiences in 4 core areas including:

1) Problems and concerns implementing tribal victim assistance programs,

2) Community strengths used to support victims of crime,

3) Barriers to implementing effective victim programs, and

4) Solutions to increase victim involvement in programs.

The information will be gathered through a facilitated discussion by Subject Matter Experts with participants on important crime victim and program needs, including input on culturally relevant components that should be incorporated into BIA’s Victim Assistance Program (VAP) Training for new tribal victim advocates. A report will also be drafted for the BIA VAP to use for future policy and program development needs.

Participation in the Webinar Focus Group is voluntary. AIDA will not use your names when reporting the information gathered. Participants will be able to voice their concerns using the Webinar chat feature, as well as provide feedback upon completion of the Webinar session via a web-form that you can fill-out online and submit with your feedback.
