Native people are invisible...we’re considered dead or conquered or in the past and not actually in the present as living people.

On March 14, 2019 at 7 PM, several of the incredible women who feature in DAUGHTERS will hold a radical panel event to empower and uplift exploited Indigenous women and girls, share their experiences, educate the public, and hold accountable the systems perpetuating violence against their women. If you will be in NYC, join them!

LOCATION:

Bluestockings Bookstore, Fair Trade Cafe & Activist Center 172 Allen Street, New York, NY 10002

DESCRIPTION:

Five Indigenous women will discuss the impact of  trafficking and exploitation on Indigenous women, as it relates to their current North American crisis, mineral extraction, land, water, prostitution, and the historical exploitation and attempted genocide of their people. Four of the five panelists are survivors of trafficking, and all are advocates to end the exploitation of land, water, and Indigenous women and girls. They will speak to the lack of systems protections for exploited Native women, and end with strategies to assist Indigenous survivors and stop the sexual exploitation of Indigenous women and girls.
