MISSION STATEMENT: “We are mothers, sisters, fathers, brothers; imperfect humans advocating for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and people. We strive to disrupt colonial paradigms and structures of gender oppression by providing education, space for healing, community organizing and interconnection. We amplify the voices of the silenced by empowering indigenous women and suppressed communities. We share their stories to honor those who have been murdered and suffered injustice. We believe justice originates from engaged communities, coming together across the boundaries of indigenous and settler nations alike.”
PANDOS’s Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women committee seeks to monitor, research, and organize on the issue of Missing and Murdered Indigenous women in the Intermountain West and South West regions. We seek to build relationships with tribal governments, municipal governments, and state and federal officials to better understand the barriers that prevent us from being able to address the atrocities perpetrated against our indigenous women. We seek to address the conditions that contribute to violence against women, and the deafening silence that follows. We seek to be the voice for people who can no longer speak for themselves.
This committee will continue to grow and evolve as we gain visibility and momentum. While this issue primarily impacts indigenous women, it is our responsibility as compassionate neighbors, friends and family members of all races, genders, religions, sexual orientations, and ethnicities to address. All are welcome. Join us!
