  • Folks in Indian Country across our nation are aware of the epidemic of missing and murdered Native American women – but outside those communities and reservations, the issue lacks the awareness it deserves. Today, I’m standing with advocates, families, and supporters to say that these women are #NotInvisible. 84% of Native American women experience some kind of violence in their lifetime, and on some reservations, they are murdered at ten times the national average. Join us to show your support and help shine a light on this issue that for too long has gone unnoticed.
