SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The Task Force was authorized by Section 904(a)(3) of the Violence Against Women and Department of Justice Reauthorization Act of 2005 (Pub. L. 109-162) and is subject to the requirements of the Federal Advisory Committee Act. The Task Force provides advice and recommendations on the development and implementation of a program of research that examines violence against Indian women in Indian Country and Alaska Native villages, including domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, stalking, murder, and sex trafficking, and evaluates the effectiveness of federal, state, tribal, and local responses to these crimes.

By statute, Task Force members must be representatives of one of the following entities: Tribal governments; national tribal domestic violence and sexual assault non-profit organizations; or national tribal organizations. Task Force candidates should be nominated by the authorized representative of the listed governments or organizations (i.e., tribal council or executive director). Task Force members are expected to: Attend meetings that usually last 1-2 days; be prepared to discuss materials distributed in advance of each meeting; and draft written recommendations and reports, as necessary. Additional information on the Task Force can be found on the OVW and NIJ websites at: https://www.justice.gov/​ovw/​section-904-task-force and https://www.nij.gov/​topics/​tribal-justice/​vaw-research/​pages/​task-force.aspx.

While OVW has previously solicited and received nominations for new Task Force members, OVW would like to expand OVW's pursuit for experience and expertise and solicit additional nominations for new members to supplement the nominations that OVW has previously received. OVW is particularly interested in individuals with law enforcement, prosecutorial and research experience.
