National Day of Awareness for Missing & Murdered Indigenous Women & Girls
Since 2017, actions on May 5th to honor missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls (MMIWG) at the local, regional, and national level continue to grow across the United States and internationally. These efforts are as varied as the Indian Nations and Indigenous communities where they are being organized. The silence, tolerance, and inaction in response to the crisis of MMIWG is being challenged by Native families, advocates, and Indian tribes.
In 2021, a full week of national events will call the nation and the world to action to honor missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls. We invite all those concerned to join these events, and we support your efforts to organize events during the National Week of Action and on May 5th, the National Day of Awareness.
This year can mark the year the government’s “no action response” is changed to a “yes, crisis-mode response.”
