The National American Indian Court Judges Association (NAICJA) and its collaborative partners will host the American Indian Justice Conference (AIJC) on the Agua Caliente Reservation in Southern California on December 7-8, 2017.
The goal of the AIJC is to provide training to enhance your tribal community’s response to combat alcohol and drug abuse, recognize how trauma impacts drug and alcohol abuse in tribal communities, and identify current trends and best practices for tribal justice systems to strengthen multi-disciplinary approaches to healing and justice. The five multi-disciplinary tracks include alcohol and substance abuse, tribal justice strategic planning, tribal courts, tribal security and probation, and tribal youth.
CTAS Purpose Area 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, and 9 grantees may use grant funds to attend the AIJC. Please confirm with your Program Manager that you have adequate travel and training funds remaining in your award.
UPDATE: THIS CONFERENCE HAS RECEIVED FINAL APPROVAL BY THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE.
