As a tribal coalition, CSVANW does not provide emergency or direct services.  If you are in an unsafe situation or need immediate assistance please dial 911.

Who We Are

Our mission is to stop violence against Native women and children by advocating for social change in our communities.

Organized in 1996 by three founding Native women, Peggy Bird (Kewa), Darlene Correa (Laguna Pueblo), and Genne James (Navajo), the Coalition to Stop Violence Against Native Women (CSVANW) was created to provide support to other Native advocates working in domestic violence, sexual assault, dating violence, stalking, and sex trafficking in New Mexico’s tribal communities.  Read More >>>

What We Do

We are focused on shaping policy, conducting outreach, increasing awareness, informing priorities and working to ensure that our tribal communities are represented within conversations where we have historically been underrepresented.
