Advocating for Systems Change for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Relatives

Center on Women, Gender, and Public Policy
April 29, 2022 - 8:30 am CDT
- 4:00 pm
Humphrey School

The epidemic of missing and murdered Indigenous relatives is rooted in colonial systems. The establishment of the first statewide task force on Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women by Minnesota in 2019, coupled with the 2021 Presidential Task Force on Missing and Murdered American Indians and Alaskan Natives, provides opportunity for change. Join us for a day of presentations and panels to learn more from the intrepid leaders that have advocated for change at local, state, and federal levels and to have honest conversations about what needs to be done to ensure that the policy measures taken by state and federal governments result in intentional systemic solutions.

This is a hybrid event.  Register here to opt to attend online or in-person. Lunch will be provided for those that register to attend in-person.

CART CAPTIONS for those that attend on Zoom.


A self-care room, including a mental health counselor, will be available to attendees that may be in need of care due to the difficult nature of this topic.
