The #MMIW Crisis and Empowering Exploited Indigenous Women of North America

Five Indigenous women will discuss the impact of trafficking and exploitation on Indigenous women, as it relates to their current North American crisis, mineral extraction, land, water, prostitution, and the historical exploitation and attempted genocide of their people. Four of the five panelists are survivors of trafficking, and all are advocates to end the exploitation of land, water, and Indigenous women and girls. They will speak to the lack of systems protections for exploited Native women, and end with strategies to assist Indigenous survivors and stop the sexual exploitation of Indigenous women and girls.
