What can we do to better serve victims of identity theft in native communities?
The WomenSpirit Coalition, a member of the National Identity Theft Victims Assistance Network (NITVAN), is working to address this issue and build the capacity to better serve the needs of native communities.
During this webinar, Dee Koester, founder and executive director of WomenSpirit Coalition, along with Cheryl Neskahi Coan, a victim services liaison, will discuss their work to create an identity theft and cybercrime program specific to serving Tribal communities. They will present on the connection between identity theft and other types of victimization, focusing on the intersectionality of identity theft and domestic violence.
WomenSpirit Coalition is a Tribal domestic violence and sexual assault coalition in Washington state and is associated with the Indigenous Crime Victim Services Referral and Resource Center.
