WomenSpirit Coalition (WSC) is a private non- profit 501 c 3 charitable organization that was founded in 2002 and is located in the Olympia WA., capital area. WSC is one of 22 Tribal Coalitions nationwide providing a voice for Native women, their families, and communities suffering from epidemic rates of sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence and stalking. WSC is founded, organized, and staffed by Native women. The Board of Directors is comprised of Native women.
Since 2002, the goal of the organization has been to support Native programs and staff in the work they do to eliminate violence against Native people. WomenSpirit staff works with 33 Tribes, in the State of Washington.
WomenSpirit Coalition’s scope of work and primary services include providing program technical assistance, consultation, and training. We provide assistance with program development, proposal review, culturally- based violence prevention and intervention practices, and models of advocacy specific to tribal communities. WSC provides training on a National level, as well.
WomenSpirit Coalition convenes the Regional WSC Networking meetings (Western & Eastern Region) and the Tribal Law and Justice Advisory Committee (LJAC), promoting the voices of Native survivors and Advocates.
