Missing Murdered and Indigenous Women+

We share their stories and strive towards justice. Join us the first Sunday of each month.

Our Mission

We are mothers, sisters, fathers, brothers; imperfect humans advocating for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and relatives. We strive to disrupt colonial paradigms and structures of gender oppression by providing education, space for healing, community organizing and interconnection. We amplify the voices of the silenced by empowering indigenous women and suppressed communities. We share their stories to honor those who have been murdered and suffered injustice. We believe justice originates from engaged communities, coming together across the boundaries of indigenous and settler nations alike.
