The Minnesota Indian Women's Sexual Assault Coalition (MIWSAC) is a statewide coalition, working to end sexual violence against all Native People, with a specialized focus on Native Women and children. We work with and for tribal communities across the state and serve as a national model for advocacy and Indigenizing responses to sexual violence.
Please help support the continued work of MIWSAC today and for the future. Miigwetch & Pida miya
Creating Safety and Justice Through the Teachings of Our Grandmothers
Through unity we will strengthen our voices and build resources to create awareness and eliminate sexual violence against Indian women and children.
The membership is comprised of American Indian and Alaska Native women and allies who bring with them extensive cultural knowledge and long histories of working in sexual assault and/or domestic violence programs. It is their effort and dedication that propel us forward as we work to end sexual violence in our communities. MIWSAC strives to reclaim the traditional values that honor the sovereignty of our women, children, and Two Spirit relatives by incorporating culture and spirituality into every aspect of program operations.
