Cherokee Nation Hosting Families Are Sacred Conference


April 18-20

The “Families Are Sacred Summit” will bring together tribal nations along with federal, state, and local law enforcement, prosecutors and service providers to share best practices on delivering safe and effective services for survivors of domestic violence and their families. We hope the ideas shared will increase successful prosecutions, and reduce crime across all tribal reservations.
Tribal governments, as well as federal, state, and local entities have all been impacted by changes to our legal and law enforcement systems following the McGirt decision by the United States Supreme Court. Now more than ever, it is critically important that we all work together for increased safety across Native lands.
