On Thursday, July 18th the National Council of Urban Indian Health (NCUIH) and the Administration for Native Americans (ANA), Administration for Children and Families at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) hosted a Virtual Dialogue on Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women. This event focused on building the capacity of urban Indian organizations (UIOs) to contribute to local MMIW efforts.
This event is in support of the Commissioner of ANA’s role as Chair of the Congressionally-mandated HHS Intradepartmental Council on Native American Affairs and the charge to lead collaborations across federal offices and stakeholders to improve outcomes for Native peoples.
We all have a role to play in addressing the tragedy of missing and murdered Indigenous women (MMIW) and the NCUIH/ANA Dialogue will identify opportunities for building the capacity of urban Indian organizations (UIOs) to contribute to local MMIW efforts.
