Is your organization still deciding on your ACRTI goal for FFY20? Need some inspiration? Look no further! DVP has launched a new Alert segment titled “Organization Spotlight” to take a closer look at some Colorado organizations who have shared their ACRTI goal(s) with DVP. We asked representatives from the organizations to answer some questions about their goal-setting process.
DVP would like to share some new and updated templates with funded organizations - be sure to check out what we have and download to adapt for your own organization as needed.
Question: We haven’t been reporting Monthly Data since the new contract started on October 1st - what reports are coming up and who do we count as new for this report?
Question: I know our organization needs to report to DVP on the number of FVPSA surveys we distribute, but we don’t have a great way to track that so I think our reported numbers may be lower than they actually are. Do you have suggestions for tracking survey distribution?
Within each DVP-funded organization’s Statement of Work are FFY20 activities related to promoting Accessible, Culturally Responsive, and Trauma-Informed (ACRTI) advocacy. In particular, Outcome 5.2.4 calls for organizations to respond to ACRTI questions within the FFY20 Year-End Narrative (which is due October 31, 2020). DVP has received questions regarding what organizations should be doing in order to meet this activity. Click to learn about the two requirements.

Violence against indigenous women has reached unprecedented levels on tribal lands and in Alaska Native villages across the US. More than 4 in 5 American Indian and Alaska Native women have experienced violence, and more than 1 in 2 have experienced sexual violence. Native children exposed to violence suffer rates of PTSD three times higher than the rest of the general population. The Ute Mountain Ute Social Services Domestic Violence Program is located on the Ute Mountain Ute reservation and provides healthy relationship courses, support groups, resources and referrals, and advocacy and supportive services to survivors of domestic violence.

International Pronouns Day was on October 16th this year. The purpose of this day is to make respecting, sharing and educating about personal pronouns commonplace. Referring to people by their identified pronouns is basic to human dignity, but many people who identify as transgender or gender-nonconforming are regularly called by the wrong pronouns.
