ABOUT THE VIRTUAL DIALOGUE ON MISSING AND MURDERED INDIGENOUS WOMEN
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.
