In the Media
Each time a domestic violence story is covered, media has an opportunity to help save lives.
The StrongHearts Native Helpline (1-844-7NATIVE) is a culturally-appropriate, anonymous, confidential service dedicated to serving Native American survivors of domestic violence and dating violence that the media can share with viewers, listeners and readers as a critical resource.
We hope the media will help us tell the story of domestic violence and dating violence in tribal communities as a way of shedding light on the devastating fact that millions of Native women and men in this country are directly experiencing abuse and threats of violence in their intimate relationships. When reporting on the issue, we ask the media to take into careful consideration the safety of these victims.
