May 5th is National Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women's Day
"It has been said that red is a color that transcends the physical world and calls to the ancestors in the spirit world. Today, the role of red is being used to call attention to the invisible — missing and murdered." - StrongHearts Native Helpline
• More than 4 in 5 American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) women (84.3 percent) have experienced violence in their lifetime.
• More than half of AI/AN women (56.1 percent) have experienced sexual violence in their lifetime.
• More than half of AI/AN women (55.5 percent) have experienced physical violence by intimate partners in their lifetime.
• Almost half of AI/AN women (48.8 percent) have been stalked in their lifetime.
• AI/AN women are 1.7 times more likely than White women to have experienced violence in the past year (Hayesa Advocate Program)
Portion of proceeds will go to the Hayesa Advocate Program in Colorado Springs, CO that works to address violence against Native survivors of domestic and sexual violence.
Haseya's vision is that every American Indian/Alaska Native woman will be treated with respect, honored as a sacred being, and have a safe and peaceful life
