Alternative NGO Report to the U.S. on the Follow-Up Report on MMIW

Within the framework of the 110th Session of the Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (CERD), the Indian Law Resource Center, the Alaska Native Women's Resource Cetner, the National Indigenous Women's Resource Center (together with its project STTARRS Indigenous Safe Housing Center), and Pouhana O nā Wāhine submitted a joint report to the CERD, evaluating the measures taken by the United States to implement Paragraph 50(e) (concerning indigenous peoples and missing and murdered indigenous peoples) of the Concluding Observations, which was selected by CERD for a one-year follow-up report by the United States. Despite some slow and limited affirmative steps by the U.S. aimed at addressing the crisis of violence, we remain very concerend as indigenous women and relatives continue to go missing and continue to be murdered.
