Tribal Access to Justice Website Launched

Tribal Access to Justice Innovation logoDeveloped by the Center for Court Innovation's Tribal Justice Exchange, a new 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 contains profiles of dozens of tribal justice programs, along with videos, podcasts, and other resources. For instance, on this site 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 this growing site. 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.
