Welcome OVW Technical Assistance Providers For African American Serving Organizations!
African American women and girls are disproportionately affected by domestic and intimate partner violence and sexual assault. The National Black Women’s Justice Institute (NBWJI) is partnering with the Office of Violence Against Women (OVW) to provide training and technical assistance to OVW grant-awarded Technical Assistance providers for African American serving organizations (AATA Providers).
This website is designed to be interactive and to serve as an electronic “braintrust.” As such, this website serves as a central location for information that is useful to advancing work to end sexual assault and intimate partner violence in the African American/African Diaspora communities in the United States. It features current information on program development, best practices, and topical expertise from leaders at the forefront of working with survivors of gender-based violence in African American communities. Additionally, this site provides members access to the latest domestic/intimate partner violence and sexual assault data affecting African American communities.
