Indigenous Women Rise
Indigenous Women Rise (IWR) collective first formed in January of 2017 to join the national Women’s March on Washington. The collective is comprised of: Advance Native Political Leadership, Native Americans in Philanthropy (NAP), Native Voice Network, Native Voices Rising, National Indian Women’s Resource Center, UltraViolet, The Continental Network of Indigenous Women of the Americas, North American Region, Indigenous Environmental Network, and other key organizations working to advance Indigenous Peoples rights and issues.
NAP will continue to support the IWR collective by implementing a research agenda on women, girls, and boarding schools. The research will serve as Phase ll of NAP’s Indigenous Lifecourse initiative. Some next steps for IWR include network webinars and dialogues to build capacity around advocacy and organizing, strengthen networks, and to build out the IWR platform to raise awareness and understanding about these issues and their intersectionality.
