Violence Against Indigenous Women

December 15 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EST

In the United States, violence against indigenous women has reached unprecedented levels on tribal lands and in Alaska Native villages. More than 4 in 5 American Indian and Alaska Native women have experienced violence, and more than 1 in 2 have experienced sexual violence. Alaska Native women continue to suffer the highest rate of forcible sexual assault and have reported rates of domestic violence up to 10 times higher than in the rest of the United States. Though available data is limited, the number of missing and murdered American Indian and Alaska Native women is extremely alarming to indigenous women, tribal governments, and communities. The lack of a diligent and adequate federal response is also concerning. On some reservations, indigenous women are murdered at more than 10 times the national average. Register for this session to learn more about this issue and ways we can support indigenous women.
