Missing from Fire Trail Road Campaign

Donation protected
The film Missing From Fire Trail Road sheds light on the hundreds of Native American women who continuously go missing in the U.S. highlighting the violence and generational trauma suffered by Native American communities, as well as the fallible laws and lack of investigation surrounding them.

We have decided to launch a campaign around the film to deal with this important issue!

We are on board with indigenous activists and political leaders who want to take action and create major awareness on the issue of MMIW.

Our goal is to educate, to inform and to heal. Families are often overwhelmed and misinformed when a loved one goes missing. Timing is critical and they are often met with skepticism by law enforcement. We aim to provide information about all the resources that are available in each state. Local activists, indigenous leaders as well as counselors will be sought out to host screening events across the country. Screenings of the film will be coupled with Interactive maps pinpointing Missing Indigenous by state along with Indigenous amber alert information from the MMIWP task force and information about the Missing Cold Case Unit will be provided to local press and audiences.

In order to help prevent future tragedies from happening, we will offer to connect women at risk with counselling groups in their community. There is already a counselor in the Tulalip Tribes that focuses on transgenerational trauma and offers treatment paid by the tribe. We would like to duplicate this in other tribes if no such service currently exists.

Last but not least, advocating for the passing of the Truth and Healing Commission on Indian Boarding School policies sponsored by the National Native American Boarding School Healing Coalition. This bill aims to recognize the traumas created by Institutionalized policues designed to eradicate an entire culture. We feel that this historical trauma needs to be recognized at a federal level as this is the root of the problem.
