Do Not Ignore Violence Against Indigenous Women

Indigenous women have been missing and murdered since Europeans came to this continent in the late 1400s. Violence against women is a priority of mine. It’s not going to be fixed with just two pieces of legislation, but now it’s time to dig deeper and keep working

Violence against Native Americans and Alaskan Natives far exceed national averages. We’ve lived through this crisis for decades, with high rates of assault, abduction, and murder of people in our communities.
