Friday marked the culmination of the National Week of Action for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women (MMIW). The homicide rate for women is ten times higher on reservations, and more than 5,000 have disappeared, a crisis that represents the intersection of genocide, colonization and violence against women and too often has been shamefully ignored. Let’s join indigenous advocates nationwide and demand change. We can urge our federal and state policymakers to follow the steps outlined in this six-point action plan, and check out this state legislative tracker from the National Indigenous Women’s Resource Center for specific bills to push for in our states. We can also participate in a Twitter storm for awareness at 3pm today, with social media toolkit available here.

  • GRATITUDE TO SHERIFF CAPERSWhen Texas Governor Greg Abbott tweeted about the April 28, 2023, mass murder in Cleveland, Texas, of Diana Velazquez Alvarado, 21, Jose Jonathan Casarez, 18, Julisa Molina, 31, Sonia Argentina Guzman, 25, and Daniel Enrique Laso-Guzman, 9, he did not grant them the dignity of saying their names. Instead, he referred to them collectively as “illegal immigrants,” and was silent about the perpetrator’s use of an AR-15 assault rifle to commit the crime. In contrast, referring to little 9-year-old Daniel, County Sheriff Greg Capers, a Republican, said, “I don’t care if here was here legally. I don’t care if he was here illegally. He was in my county. Five people died in my county, and that is where my heart is…” Let’s thank Sheriff Capers for insisting on the full humanity of those who died in this terrible act of gun violence—contact info here.
