May 5: #MMIWG Action Day

National Day of Awareness to Commemorate Missing and Murdered Native Women and Girls - May 5th

Join National Indigenous Women's Resource Center (NIWRC) for the National Day of Action to commemorate Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls on May 5.

"The continuing reports of abductions and murders of Native women and girls represent one of the most horrific aspects of the spectrum of violence committed against Native women. The murder rate of Native women is more than ten times the national average on some reservations. Often, these disappearances or murders are connected to crimes of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, stalking, and sex trafficking."
