SACRAMENTO, Calif. — In recognition of International Women’s Day, hundreds of American Indian, other Indigenous women and allies gathered at the State Capitol on Saturday, March 9, 2019, to remember missing and murdered Indigenous women (MMIW).
This is an issue that does not receive enough attention in the media. The issue impacts Indigenous people in the United States and Canada who are disproportionately represented in terms of violence against women.
The program included speakers and singers.
