Protect Native Women
The statistics of missing and murdered indigenous women are staggering - with 84% of Native women experiencing violence in their lifetime and a murder rate 10 times the national average. This epidemic can no longer be avoided. With stay-at-home orders in place in many states and tribes to stop the spread of COVID-19, rates of violence in Indian Country are likely to skyrocket.
