The Red Women Rising Project is dedicated to uplifting the voices of Urban Indian survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault through increasing awareness around Urban Indian women’s domestic violence issues and enhancing survivors' access to domestic violence services. This project also aims to enhance provider capacity to care for Native American survivors of abuse by providing access to culturally-responsive resources and training opportunities. By bringing the issues of unbalanced access to resources for justice and healing for the large numbers of Native women living in cities and other urban areas to the fore, Red Women Rising strives to promote a holistic approach towards curbing the issue of domestic violence in Urban Indian communities.
