Safety for Our Sisters: Ending Violence Against Native Women draws vitally needed attention to the pressing and pervasive issue of violence against Native women, who suffer disproportionately high levels of rape, domestic violence and attacks at the hands of strangers. The symposium explores the causes and consequences of this abuse and considers social and legal issues involved in these acts of violence. This project received support from the Smithsonian American Women’s History Initiative.  

Sari Horwitz, a three-time Pulitzer-prize winning reporter for the Washington Post, moderates the symposium. Horwitz is the author of the Post’s award-winning series “Justice in Indian Country.”
