Recorded on Thursday 3/18 at 5 PM EST. The Native Justice Coalition has led work in the Great Lakes on justice for missing and murdered Indigenous women, girls, and Two-Spirits. Through community collaboration and partnership a billboard campaign has engaged in creating awareness on this difficulty issue. The work is just beginning and momentum is building across Native communities in the US and Canada. How do colonial borders, treaty rights, colonial law, gender based violence, and settler colonialism weave together in this maze of injustice?
