Working Together For A Safer Tomorrow

History
History of Working Together for a Safer Tomorrow:

In 2006, Elizabeth City State University was awarded a $5,000 grant to develop and implement a pilot program designed to bring together populations residing on federal Indian trust lands and neighboring non-Indian communities. The Oneida Tribe of Indians of Wisconsin served as co-hosts for the first Intertribal Risk Analysis Symposium.

In 2007, the program was relocated to Haskell Indian Nations University in Lawrence, Kansas, and a three-year grant was awarded to the Haskell Foundation to continue the work developed during the pilot period.
