MMIP Day of Awareness
Chapa-De Indian Health Auburn Grass Valley | Medical Clinic
Missing or Murdered Indigenous Persons Awareness Day is observed on May 5th. This day as well as the entire month of May is a time to bring awareness to, and honor the hundreds of Indigenous people who are taken from their communities each year.
The Importance of MMIP Day of Awareness
For generations, Indigenous people have struggled with high rates of assault, abduction, and murder. Oftentimes, Indigenous people have to mourn a missing or murdered loved-one without receiving the answers and support they deserve.
Homicide is a leading cause of death for Indigenous women, and they also face murder rates that are ten times higher than the national average. On Missing or Murdered Indigenous Persons Awareness Day, we remember these victims and their families as we work to achieve justice and healing.
