[Native woman holding a sign that reads: 1 out of 3 Native women will be raped in their lifetime. 3 out of 4 will be pysically assaulted. The murder rate of our women is 10 times higher than the National average. This year the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act is up that would help our communities with resources as well as criminal jurisdiction. But what can we do?
Stand up and be the voice. Educate each other aobut resources, laws, and policies. Talk to your Tribal Council about what your community is doing about these alarming statistics - THEN ask them what else we can do to protect victims.
We as proud people should protect our own.
