New Hotline Available for Native American Survivors of Domestic and Dating Violence

A hotline is now available to specifically help Native American survivors of domestic and dating violence.

StrongHearts Native Helpline‘s initial service area is Oklahoma, Kansas and Nebraska.

“One of the problems in Indian Country is there’s a huge lack of services, and there really hasn’t been any efforts to create a database that pulls together all of the resources that are available,” said StrongHearts Assistant Director Lori Jump.

Jump said violence against women is an epidemic in Indian Country.

“Native American women are two times as likely as any other race to experience rape or sexual assault, two and a half times more likely to experience violent crime and five times more likely to be the victim of homicide,” Jump said. “So, we have an incredible need for services in our communities.”

The helpline will connect callers with confidential, culturally appropriate support services. Some of those services are meant to help sort out complicated matters of jurisdiction.

“The ability of Native governments to prosecute is pretty restricted in terms of who they can prosecute, especially when it comes to non-Native perpetrators,” Jump said.

The helpline is available at 1-844-7NATIVE Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Callers outside those hours can connect with the National Domestic Violence Hotline.

StrongHearts is offered by The National Indigenous Women’s Resource Center and the National Domestic Violence Hotline. It receives some funding from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.

Message from NCADV: The work goes on – we are not changing

Message from NCADV

Every four years, we as a nation are faced with change. At NCADV, we work to ensure that no matter who sits in the Oval Office, we never change our mission. We continue to work toward a society that has no tolerance for domestic violence. We give the same energy and passion to the voices and concerns of victims and survivors and the intersecting issues, no matter who the President-elect.

As we grasp what has occurred this week, we want to let you know: we are not changing. Our work remains the same. We will continue to work on your behalf and remain steadfast in our mission.

Our President-elect will receive the same message from us, and we will hold him and others accountable to ensuring the rights of women, girls, and those impacted by domestic violence are never compromised. We will continue to work on policy and strategies that support and address the needs of those we work for and serve as their voice. If our President-elect is serious about making change, he will vigorously address these issues. We will hold him accountable on any policy and action that puts victims and survivors at further risk, including policies that allow for hate, abuse, or violence.

Always take care of yourselves. We developed a list of self care tips for you to serve as a guide. Please take care of others. Reach out to those you hold dear.

Like you, I am determined to continue to make change. We will continue to work with our sister organizations and allies. We are still strong. We still have power, and we will not be swayed by anything other than what is right.

Remember these words from Audre Lourde: “When we speak we are afraid our words will not be heard or welcomed. But when we are silent, we are still afraid. So it is better to speak.” We will continue to speak.

What Can You Do Today?
— Encourage self-care in your life and encourage others to do the same
— Volunteer with your nearest domestic violence program or shelter or contribute to your favorite national or local non-profit that is committed to change
— Sign up for public policy action alert emails from the NCADV

Be Well,

Ruth M. Glenn, NCADV Executive Director
