"Strengthening Offender Accountability and Intervention in Tribal Communities" 


Speaker: Jeremy NeVilles-Sorell


Wica Agli means “To Return a Man” and our mission is to reclaim traditional understandings of manhood, tied with responsibility, protection, and respect, and share them with men and boys everywhere for a safe and comfortable environment. This presentation will discuss the nature of program for men who batter in a multidisciplinary response, policy development, and community awareness to strengthen intervention efforts to hold offenders accountable while acknowledging the trauma many men have faced historically and personally. As we build the movement of engaging men and youth, we are also building our tools to increase our outreach, awareness, education, and capacity to further bring about understanding on historical trauma, childhood sexual abuse, and societal messages that contribute to men perpetrating domestic violence and sexual assault.
