Logan Lynn, Portugal. The Man, and PTM Foundation Partners Launch MMIW Awareness Campaign with the City of Portland

Today we bring awareness, solidarity, love, and a demand for justice for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women.

Nearly half of all Native American women — 46 percent — have experienced rape, physical violence, or stalking by an intimate partner. One in three Indigenous Women will, at some point in their lives, experience the violence and trauma of rape. In some U.S. communities, Native American Women are murdered at a rate more than 10 times the national average.

We stand together in our healing, and we stand together to break the cycle.

No More Silence. ✊ #MMIWpdx

The Need is Great: Support Communities of Indigenous Peoples with PTM Foundation

“Despite Native Americans accounting for nearly 2% (5.4 million) of the U.S. population, philanthropic funding for the population remains less than 0.5% of annual foundation grant dollars across the board. The majority of philanthropic efforts to improve people’s lives overlook the distinctive needs and issues facing Communities of Indigenous Peoples,” said PTM Foundation Director Logan Lynn. “We all need to be doing more.” ✊
