July 2020 Newsletter
The Coalition to Stop Violence Against Native Women’s grounding in the movement to end violence is not only to organize, but to mobilize people toward healthier families and healthier communities. And, this July we are making space to honor the work of so many who have organized, mobilized and shifted power toward creating and reclaiming safer and healthier communities for our women and children.

We know that the solutions to violence exist within our own communities and we affirm we have effective systems, responses and cultural practices that predate colonial influence. Everyday we are reminded of our resilience, strength and love. 
So many of you have come together to call out injustices, demand accountability and seek safety for all our relatives. Communities are taking a stand against white supremacy and calling for a true account of our history as Indigenous and Black Peoples. The eyes of history are on this moment when so many forms of violence are no longer being tolerated.

Statues of Christopher Columbus, Confederate soldiers, Don Juan de Oñate and others who carried out violence against Indigenous and Black communities are being removed. Racist mascots and imagery are being questioned nationally. We are witnessing our relatives stand in true solidarity with Black Lives Matter movements demanding for justice, liberation and equity.

We are grateful and inspired by every one of you who is pushing back against this violence. You are creating safer, healthier and more liberated communities for our women and children. We see you.

Thank you.
Together, we are the movement.

For State Fiscal 2021
New Applications due July 31, 2020, 5:00 PM
Submit form and budget to  davidb.river@state.nm.us

The Children’s Capacity Building Project (CCBP) is an ongoing effort to enhance the quality and depth of responses to children in domestic violence programs throughout New Mexico. The Children, Youth and Families Department (CYFD) Behavioral Health Services (BHS) Domestic Violence Unit is accepting applications in response to this Request for Application (this “RFA,” or this “Request for Application”) to continue supporting CCBP sites, allowing expansion for existing CCBP sites, and expanding the number of CCBP sites to new participating sites.

CYFD’s goals with the Children’s Capacity Building Project (CCBP) is to assist and support children exposed to domestic violence in healing from the trauma they have experienced and to repair and rebuild the non-abusing/protective parent/child relationship impacted by the abuse.

CYFD seeks proposed projects that are innovative, meet the diverse needs of children and families in New Mexico, and align with the overall goal of the project. While proposed budgets are a significant factor, other criteria will form the basis of CYFD’s award decision, which is fully described in the Evaluation Factors section of this Request for Application below.
