Tribal Access to Justice Innovation is a new website highlighting innovative tribal justice programs from around the country.
Developed by the Center for Court Innovation's Tribal Justice Exchange, the website seeks to provide ideas and inspiration to reformers looking to address common challenges like substance use, domestic violence, gang involvement, and juvenile delinquency.
Tribal Access to Justice Innovation, which can be found at tribaljustice.org, contains profiles of dozens of tribal justice programs, along with videos, podcasts, and other resources. For instance, on tribaljustice.org, you can:
- read about the St. Regis Mohawk Tribe’s Healing to Wellness Court;
- watch a video about the Puyallup Tribe’s G.R.E.A.T. summer camp for at-risk youth;
- listen to an interview with the coordinator of the Navajo Nation’s Peacemaking Program.
This is just a small sample of what you’ll find on tribaljustice.org, and the website is continuing to grow. The Center is currently working with the Tribal Law and Policy Institute, the National Criminal Justice Training Center at Fox Valley Technical College, and tribal justice practitioners across the country to highlight more innovative programs and add more resources. We also encourage you to suggest programs to be included on the website.
As we launch this exciting new project, we extend our thanks to all of the tribal justice leaders and practitioners who have contributed their time and energy. Their experience, expertise, stories, and advice have made this project possible.
