Four out of five indigenous women are affected by violence today, with murder rates more than 10 times the national average. So why don’t we hear more about this shocking issue?
Join us as we close out Women’s History Month with an important discussion on the Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women’s (MMIW) crisis that has been a problem through generations. An issue the Indigenous community has been fighting for decades. Jodi Voice Yellowfish and Christy Swimmer McLemore of MMIWTX Rematriate will discuss the crisis – past, present and future. From the Indian Relocation Act, federal policies, current issues faced by the Native community, and share resources. A facilitated dialogue will follow.
