Circles of Care Is looking for individuals from the Tribal Community to share their experience of Resilience and overcoming hardship! As we work to build a stronger and healthier community, we are providing this opportunity to highlight tribal members who have a story that can promote hope. American Indians and Alaska Natives in California have elevated rates of poverty, violence, substance abuse, depression, and other psychological maladies when compared to non-Hispanic whites (CTEC 2009, CRIHB 2010). We understand this fact and are working to create change and build hope through our efforts with the Circles of Care Program. We want to hear your story. We want to highlight your strength. We want to share your hope so we can help others. Please click the link or scan the QR code to register and be a part of this project. Incentive Gift Cards will be given in exchange for your participation in this important work. Thank you.

Currently Zito Media does not support this benefit.
Since 2017, grassroots actions on May 5th to honor and call for justice for missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls (MMIWG) have increasingly grown at the local, regional, national, and international level. Native families, advocates, and Indigenous nations continue to rise up to challenge the silence, tolerance, and inaction in response to the crisis of MMIWG.
On this day, May 5th we wear Red, in solidarity and honor of this cause. Thank you to all that participated and shared time together today.
