The National Indigenous Women’s Resource Center (NIWRC) invites you to a briefing to understand the complex and ongoing Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women (MMIW) crisis.
The Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women (MMIW) crisis in America is not just the result of failures of our criminal justice system, it is a result of systemic violations of indigenous women’s human rights. The presentation will review the international legal framework applicable to MMIW and other forms of gender-based violence committed against indigenous women.
Attendees will learn about the impact and legacies of INCITE! Women, Transgender and Gender Non-Conforming People of Color Against Violence (formerly INCITE! Women of Color Against Violence) on the movement to end sexual violence since their foundational conference, “The Color of Violence: Violence Against Women of Color,” convened in 2000, and the publication of INCITE’s joint statement with Critical Resistance on gender-based violence and the prison-industrial complex.
This webinar will explore the impact of trauma and violence towards Native Hawaiian women in our communities as a result of the U.S. overthrow of our government and forced statehood.
In part 2 of the three-part Supporting Family Resiliency through Relationships with Animals webinar series, the presenters will share step by step strategies employed to transform programs and domestic violence shelters into animal friendly spaces.
