She’s Gone Missing: Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women

Thursday, March 10, 4-5 p.m.

The FDU Library is proud to celebrate Women’s History Month as we welcome Heather Bruegl of Forge Project.  Ms. Bruegl will bring light to the issue of why the numbers of missing and murdered indigenous women in the U.S. are largely unreported.  The event is online – register HERE.

There is an epidemic that no one is talking about outside of Indian Country. Within our community, we are dealing with an epidemic of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women. With numbers so high that they are unreported, how do we deal with it all? Why aren’t there concrete statistics? Why do the crimes go unreported?  Let’s talk some history and try to find out why this is an issue and what we can do in and out of Indian Country to make sure that our sisters, mothers, daughters, wives and girlfriends don’t become a statistic. Heather Bruegl, director of education at the Forge Project will present during this virtual event, followed by a question-and-answer session. It is cosponsored by Maxwell Becton College of Arts and Sciences, FDU Libraries and Diverse Student Union organization. Register here.
