Native women from the Indian reservations of Rincon, Pauma, Mesa Grande, Santa Ysabel, La Jolla, San Pasqual, Los Coyotes, Pala, and Inaja/Cosmit founded our organization. We have over 22 individual members from our local tribal communities in Southern California. Each board member volunteers their time on the board and working on policy changes to enhance our Tribes and ensure victim safety.
