A National Day of Awareness for Missing and Murdered Native Women and Girls will:
1) honor the lives of our Native sisters,
2) continue to shed light on the countless tragedies involving our Native sisters,
3) highlight the need for ongoing grassroots advocacy and organizing for change of laws, policies, protocols, and allocation of increased resources at the tribal, federal, and state levels to end these injustices, and
4) create the sharing of information needed to understand the legal reforms and changes required.
NIWRC remains committed to increasing safety and access to justice for American Indian, Alaska Native, and Native Hawaiian women and girls by advocating for reforms at the systemic level to prevent future acts of violence. Through this organizing for justice, we are committed to lifting the voices of surviving family members to hold accountable the failed systems responsible for this national crisis.
Join NIWRC on May 5th to support the Senate and House resolutions declaring May 5, the National Day of Awareness for Missing and Murdered Native Women and Girls.
