MARCH FOR MISSING AND MURDERED INDIGENOUS PEOPLE
We wear red and march on May 5 in solidarity with Native Nations to give voice to the thousands of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls who deserve to be a national priority,” NHBP Chief Judge Melissa Pope said. “With your help, our Sisters can be returned home, where survivors can receive culturally-honoring care to help heal from the trauma, and for those whose lives have been tragically taken, their loved ones may find comfort in caring for them in the Spirit World through the ceremonies of their Nations. Through the collective commitment to end the silence, we must demand justice for each and every Missing and Murdered Indigenous Woman and Girl.
