On May 5, 2021, Attorney General Merrick Garland stated that “Generations of American Indians and Alaska Natives have experienced violence or mourned a murdered or missing family member or loved one. The lasting effects of such trauma and suffering ripple across their communities.” He also reaffirmed the Department of Justice’s commitment to Tribes across the country who need and deserve federal resources to help bring answers and justice to their grieving communities. This commitment to tribes is echoed by the Departments of the Interior and Health and Human Services. In an effort to find lasting solutions to the public safety challenges Tribal communities encounter and to protect them from violence, abuse, and exploitation, a national symposium on missing or murdered indigenous persons (MMIP) related issues for federal, state, tribal and local stakeholders is being held September 14-16, 2021. This MMIP training is via webinar and will address important topics like data collection, victim advocacy, creating a community strategy for addressing missing persons, and working collaboratively across jurisdictions. The webinar is free.
