The International Association of Forensic Nurses (IAFN) was awarded grant funding from the Office on Violence Against Women (OVW) for this resource center, which we call the Indigenous Sexual Assault and Abuse Clearinghouse (ISAAC) project. We are developing a unique approach to delivering training and providing resources, education, technical assistance, and support to professionals addressing sexual assault and abuse in Tribal Communities.

The ISAAC team believes that our strength lies not only in the words we stand by, but most importantly through the actions of our initiatives. We believe by working together we can overcome challenges more efficiently, and that is why we are working closely with our partners to deliver up-to-date training to Alaska and Indian Country.
