Indigenous women, girls, and two-spirit people suffer gender-based violence and go missing at alarming rates. That’s why the Native Justice Coalition launched the MMIWG2S Program; the abbreviation stands for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls, and Two-Spirit People. This Native-led organization provides trainings and education, policy advocacy, conferences, community support, and more.
