What is more important than creating new tools and resources for community members to use? Making sure that those new tools and resources are ones that the community feels comfortable using. As a part of our Red Women Rising initiative, we want to ensure that the website we are developing, redwomenrising.org, which will serve as a resource hub for Native survivors of domestic violence as well as an educational platform, is visually reflective of the community is intended to benefit. We believe that Native oriented resources require community participation to truly serve their purpose and fulfill their goals of truly benefiting community.
To help do this, we are asking for photo contributions from Native community members to help bring the website to life and enrich the experience of its future users!

CCUIH’s Red Women Rising project, funded by the Blue Shield of California Foundation, supports culturally responsive domestic violence services for Urban Indians by increasing public awareness and enhancing collaborations between UIHOs, Domestic Violence service providers and Traditional Healers.
As part of Red Women Rising’s objective to increase public awareness, CCUIH facilitated a digital storytelling workshop to empower Native Women to share their stories about their experiences with Domestic Violence. Digital Stories are first-hand survivor experiences that share narratives of hope and resilience.
