Consider wearing RED to this event

“During the period of 1979 through 1992, homicide was the thirdleading cause of death of indigenous females aged 15 to 34, with 75 percent were killed by family members or acquaintances. This situation has not changed since then. In 2005, the movement for
safety of Native women resulted in the “Safety for Indian Women”
being included under the Violence Against Women Act. A study
released by the U.S. Department of Justice has found that in
some tribal communities, American Indian women face murder
rates that are more than 10 times the national average. Over
the last decade awareness of this national issue has increased
but more must be done to stop disappearances and save lives.
Please join us on May 5th, 2019, as we honor missing and
murdered Indigenous women and together increase our national
awareness and demand change at the tribal, federal and state
levels.” NWIC
