We provide MMIW/P families healing and justice supports that are culturally founded, connected to land, and comprehensive. Our team recognizes the maze of jurisdictions and systems that families of MMIW/P have to navigate which often leads to re-traumatization, frustration, and delays in response. We work to eliminate and reduce this harm through coordinating responses, advocating with and for MMIW/P families, and providing clear informed communication. In addition to systems navigation and advocacy we offer healing and stabilization supports for families of MMIW/P that are ongoing.
Our team has coordinated over 20+ MMIW/P cases across the nation within our first 2 years of operation and unfortunately those numbers continue to grow. Our multi-disciplinary team has built relationships with grassroots, law enforcement, search & rescue teams, and state agencies that are working towards more just and equitable responses for our families of MMIW/P. We value the power of collective knowledge and working across settler colonial jurisdictions. In addition to providing direct supports to and with families of MMIW/P we offer trainings on how agencies and communities can build their own MMIW/P Healing and Response teams.
The MMIW/P (Missing Murdered Indigenous Women/Persons) movement has been led and directed by our MMIW/P families to bring attention to the rates at which our indigenous women, girls and two spirit relatives go missing and murdered. We want to ensure that our relatives and survivors never have to do this work alone, we want to walk with them in this journey for justice and healing.
