Today’s Action: State support for missing and murdered indigenous women and girls

Native women face astounding rates of violence. On reservations, women are assaulted at rates ten times the national average (Savanna’s Act, which is working its way through Congress, aims to combat this). For Native women living outside reservations, however, the reality is no less grim.

71% of American Indians and Native Alaskans live in urban areas, off reservations, and there is little infrastructure in these places for tracking missing and murdered indigenous women and girls (MMIWG).

This leaves tribal nations with virtually no way to support victims in urban communities and many women lost to a system incapable of (or unwilling to) find and help them.

Call or email your Governor and State Legislators, and ask them to support MMIWG in urban areas:

  1. Tell them to direct state funding to coordinating with tribal nations on MMIWG data collection and policy adjustment in urban areas
  2. Send them the Urban Indian Health Institute’s research as a launch pad

The missing data begins with racial misclassification in police reporting. Many local police jurisdictions lack a uniform way of identifying Native women and girls in their systems – even though racial classification is a common practice in general.

The second barrier in data collection results from little to no coordination with Native tribes. Although tribal nations are sovereign, they are not treated as such; local police units often do not report victims of crimes to tribes, the way they would victims hailing from a foreign country.

Violence against women is a nationwide issue – but violence against Native women is perhaps one of our country’s oldest real-life horror stories. We are long past due putting attention on this issue…and today, we take it to the states.

Email or call your Governor and State Legislators and demand they focus support on Native women living in urban areas.

  1. Ask for research and funding, coordinated with tribal nations, on improving data collection and police policy for MMIWG
  2. Refer them to the Urban Indian Health Institute’s research for a baseline understanding of this issue.
