    Penn Law School Event: Protection of Native American Women

    The University of Pennsylvania Law School will be having an event on Monday, February 17th, 2014, entitled: Protection of Native American Women under the 2013 Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act. This event is sponsored by Penn Law Students Against Gender-Based Exploitation (SAGE), the Custody and Support Assistance Clinic (CASAC), and Toll Public Interest Week.

    There will be a panel from 4:30 - 5:40 PM followed by a keynote speech from 5:50 - 6:30 PM. A reception will follow.

    All events will take place at the law school, 3501 Sansom St, Philadelphia, PA 19104, in Silverman Hall, Room 245A.

    The following is a summary of the event:

    Increased protection for Native American women was perhaps the most controversial aspect of the expanded 2013 Violence Against Women Reauthorization Act. Many Native American victims of domestic violence have historically been unable to seek justice because their courts were not permitted to prosecute non-Native offenders—even for crimes committed on tribal land. VAWA 2013 includes a provision that would give tribal courts the authority to hold offenders in their communities accountable. SAGE and CASAC will be presenting a panel discussion exploring: 1) the constitutionality of the extension of tribal criminal jurisdiction over non-Indians under the Supreme Court’s implicit divestiture doctrine; (2) the bases for the anxieties of anti-sovereignty activists and politicia ns (particularly the opposition among many Republican senators) over the expansion of tribal court jurisdiction; (3) questions confronting tribes on incorporating non-Indians into structures of tribal customary law, as well as the opportunities for Native institution and nation-building that VAWA presents.

    This discussion will be followed by a keynote address by Diane Millich, an advocate and Native American survivor of violent domestic abuse that has gone unprosecuted because she lives on tribal land and her attacker was a non-Indian.

    Speaker Names and Bios:

    Panel Speakers: Professor Bethany Berger (University of Connecticut Law School); Professor Leo Killsback (Arizona State University); Professor Ezra Rosser (American University Washington College of Law). Panel Moderator: Gregory Ablavsky, Penn Law Sharswood Fellow in Law and History.

    Keynote Speaker: Diane Millich - Diane Millich is one of the country’s most prominent advocates of protection for Native American women. She is the founder and former Executive Director of Our Sister’s Keeper Coalition, an organization that provides support, advocacy, and resource referral to tribal survivors of family violence and sexual violence. Ms. Millich is a member of the Southern Ute Tribe in Colorado and is a survivor of domestic violence.
