        Event Information

        Each year, American Indians Against Abuse (AIAA)End Domestic Abuse Wisconsin and WCASA coordinate training specifically for rural and tribal sexual assault and domestic violence programs. In 2018 we are excited to announce Theda New Breast, MPH, master trainer/facilitator of the Native Wellness Institute as main speaker, in addition to speakers from the Red Cliff Band of Lake Superior Chippewa community and around the state. We invite advocates of all experience levels to attend.

        This year the Jimmy Pease Memorial Quilt will be passed from the Ho-Chunk Nation to the Red Cliff Band of Lake Superior Chippewa. Jimmy Pease had been a beloved founding member of American Indians Against Abuse (AIAA), and in 2003 was killed in a car crash while traveling home from an AIAA meeting.

        The Northern Training will be held at the Legendary Waters Resort & Casino (37600 Onigamiing Dr, Bayfield, WI 54814)

        Scholarships

        WCASA is offering a limited number of scholarships for lodging and mileage. Please note that scholarship recipients still must pay the registration fee of $50. If multiple staff apply from an agency, some may be placed on a waitlist. A portion of the scholarships are being set aside for people of color. 

        Mileage Reimbursement: If you are applying for mileage reimbursement, we will have a form ready for you to sign at the registration table when you check in. Due to the quick turn around to submit grant costs, if you do not complete the form during the training, we will be unable to provide reimbursement.

        Lodging: If you are applying for lodging, you will be responsible for booking your hotel room. Upon check-in, we will move your room to our room-block. If you feel this is a barrier, please let us know and we can make another arrangement.

        Please note: This scholarship only covers lodging on the nights of September 24th and 25th. Scholarships for the Restraining Orders and Tribal/Non-tribal Jurisdiction Issues Training on 9/27 are being accepted separately by End Abuse. Go to endabusewi.org/events for more information.

        If you are staff of a tribal program and would like to apply for a scholarship, please connect with American Indians Against Abuse first. Contact Pam Johnson at aiaa.pamela@gmail.com.
