About this Event:

As a result of the advocacy of community members, grassroots organizers, and legislators, the Washington State MMIW/P Task Force was established within the Attorney General’s Office in 2021. The Task Force builds on the work of impacted families, tribal leaders, and advocates to continue addressing the MMIWP crisis. The Task Force began meeting in December 2021, and released an interim report in August 2022.

At this first summit, the Task Force seeks to provide a platform to the Indigenous communities of Washington and the greater Pacific Northwest region to highlight the hard-won successes of this work, and to look toward future opportunities to address community needs.
