Who: Shawnee Tribe employees and other area tribal employees that wish to join us.
What: Walking the Eight Tribes Trail to bring awareness to Domestic Violence and Abuse. An information booth with facts, lists of community resources, and individual/family support resources will be available. Purple DV awareness t-shirts will be provided to ST staff for the event and other tribal partners are encouraged to wear purple as well.
Where: Eight Tribes Trail
When: October 20th, 10:00 AM – 11:30 AM
Why: Domestic Violence is a catastrophic series of abuses that negatively impacts individuals, families, tribal communities, and society at large. Indigenous persons experience domestic violence at nearly twice the national average, therefore, advocacy for and awareness of survivors of abuse are vital to ensure the safety of Shawnee Citizens.
