Legal Barriers to Justice for Native Women

The National Indigenous Women’s Resource Center is hosting a webinar on May 9th from 1-2:30 MDT, Legal Barriers to Justice for Native Women. From the site:

Federal law prohibits tribal governments from prosecuting non-Native offenders, and only allows tribal governments to punish Native people for minor offenses. This lack of serious enforcement authority goes to the systemic root of the problem for tribal governments and Native non-profit organizations working to end violence against Native women in their communities.
