"A nation is not conquered until the hearts of its women are on the ground" - Cheyenne Proverb
Two Feathers Domestic Violence Program aims to end Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault among Native American people living in Humboldt County. Our Domestic Violence program promotes the safety of Native American families through direct services, education and advocacy. We are committed to helping organize community efforts to end violence against women and children in Native communities through strengthening the traditional native beliefs and teachings that have guided our people for thousands of years. We believe social change is necessary to address the disproportionate rates of violence impacting our communities. We also believe in all rights of all people to live without fear, threat, violence and oppression. This belief includes the rights of gender and sexual minorities who may be oppressed by ongoing patriarchy and other forms of gender and sexual violence.
