NCAI and TLPI to Host a Webinar on Implementation of the Expanded Jurisdiction Provisions of the VAWA

April 4, 2013

On April 5, 2013, from 1:30-3:30 pm (EST), NCAI, in partnership with the Tribal Law and Policy Institute, will host a webinar on implementation of the Violence Against Women Act's expanded tribal jurisdiction provision, and what issues it presents for Indian tribal governments.


In preparation for this webinar, and the overall implementation of the expanded jurisdiction provisions, NCAI prepared this Draft Amended Version of the Indian Civil Rights Act (download), as it will be codified after Yesterday's historic signing of the Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act of 2013. Please review and we look forward to you joining us for this important webinar.
