DIFRC | Denver Indian Family Resource Center

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month

The Colorado College Native American Student Union and the Wellness Resource Center have collaborated to put together a Zoom panel and discussion on two short films centering the Murdered and Missing Indigenous Women and Girls (MMIW) movement: “Dead Woman’s Pass” (https://youtu.be/mc1_6xBh0Mo) and “The Search: Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women” (https://youtu.be/mdPv0NDfMbA). The staggering rate of violence faced by Indigenous women is unique in that in intersects with white settler colonialism, racism + sexism, and police brutality. The problem is global in nature, as one of the films will demonstrate. Come learn about these issues and what we can do to address them with local Native educators, advocates, artists, and activists! Please RSVP to receive links to the film for viewing before the panel!
