Stopping the Abuse and Murder of Native Women (MMIW): Getting on the Mother Earth Road from Violence to the Sacred

Indigenous women experience 10 times higher rates of violence, murder and abuse than women of other ethnicities—a direct result of an economic system that privileges extraction over human rights. But Indigenous women are also fighting back: organizing, and raising their voices in solidarity to restore balance. In this session, powerful Native women leaders discuss how to address the Missing Murdered Indigenous Women crisis and share inspiring practices that can help us to shape our own activism. With: Cari Herthel (Esselen); Morning Star Gali (Sacramento); others TBA.

October 20th | 4:30 pm to 6:00 pm
