All Nations Cafe Session at the AIJC: 

Join us for the All-Nations Cafe. This session is designed for you to share your innovations and learn from your fellow participants! This activity is similar to a poster session and we encourage you to create something and become exhibitors. What you can do: develop a poster board or visual display describing the process (including the change-process); draft talking points and select a team member to present; bring brochures, fact sheets, sample forms or policies that you would like to share; bring business cards or provide contact information so participants will be able to reach you if they have additional questions or seek advice. If you are interested in participating please contact Cheri Ely to sign-up or ask questions. Raffle prizes will be drawn for both exhibitors and participants.

Registration for the Training: Register HERE. No cost for registration, but participants must cover the costs of travel, lodging, and per diem/food.

About: The goal of the Bureau of Justice Assistance sponsored AIJC is to provide training to enhance your tribal community’s response to combat alcohol and drug abuse, recognize how trauma impacts drug and alcohol abuse in tribal communities, and identify current trends and best practices for tribal justice systems to strengthen multi-disciplinary approaches to healing and justice. The five multi-disciplinary tracks include alcohol and substance abuse, tribal justice strategic planning, tribal courts, tribal security and probation, and tribal youth.  

CTAS Purpose Area 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, and 9 grantees may use grant funds to attend the AIJC. Please confirm with your Program Manager that you have adequate travel and training funds remaining in your award.
