The proclamation was sponsored by council-member Debora Juarez and crafted by several Native women.
The of unknown, unreported, or mis-classified cases is at least double that. According to the National Institute of Justice, more than four out of five Native women have experienced violence in their lives.
Many of us have suffered abuse or violence starting when we were small children. Often we are left with untreated trauma, which places our women and girls in positions of vulnerability such as lack of money, unhealthy relationships, domestic violence, and struggles with addiction.
These are all factors that contribute to the exploitation and disappearance of our women. Even members of my own tribe back home in Juneau have gone missing. We will not be defined by tragedy. Instead we can together to stop this epidemic and to heal as a community. I stand with families in hope that their missing family member will return home.
The disappearances and murders of Native American women and girls directly correlate to domestic violence, sexual assault or human trafficking. The U. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported homicide is the third leading cause of death for Native American women and girls between the ages of 10 and 24 years old. It is the fifth leading cause of death for Native women between 25 and 34 years old. We know these national statistics are felt on a local level in Seattle. My hope is together, by shining a light on this injustice, we will inspire and enact real change.
