There is a disproportionate amount of indigenous women going missing or murdered in the United States and Canada. In turn there is also a disproportionate amount of missing and murdered children and men that are Native. This is because of many reasons but sexual violence and trafficking are major causes

Bristol Bay Response

Calling out the Names

This event will be a walk through grief with stations set out in Dillingham that give you prompts on how to deal with loss and grief. More info will be posted when available.

This will be a Facebook Live Virtual Event on Wednesday at 6:30. We will be reading out the names that are sent to us calling them home if they are missing and honoring the spirit of their lives if they are murdered.


We also have candles available to light that night. Thay can be picked up at Ulla's, SAFE, Curyung Tribe or village counsels or by emailing Outreach@safebristolbay.org
