Missing & Murdered Indigenous Women & Girls

Missing & Murdered Indigenous Women & Girls

The National Indigenous Women’s Resource Center (NIWRC) and the National Partners Work Group on Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls are organizing a week of events(April 29-May 5) to call the nation to action in honor of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls.We encourage all individuals and organizations to participate in these virtual events and organize in your communities on and around May 5th.

For decades, Native families and communities have been fighting against the disturbing rates of MMIWG. At Homicide Survivors, we gather in support with these victims as they face a lack of justice from their government officials for crimes that happen too often.

Join us in saying ‘enough is enough’—not one more stolen sister.
