ZZZ-RETIRED Violence Against Native Women
Racial Justice & Multicultural Ministries

Government reports have found that Native women are 2.5 times more likely to become victims of sexual violence than non-Native women in the United States, and one in three Native women will be raped during her lifetime. Widespread human rights abuses within the judicial system and the maze of the complex interrelation of federal, state, and tribal jurisdictions often allows perpetrators to act with impunity and evade justice and keep Native women from receiving adequate legal protection. Additionally, inadequate funding of health care and other programs leave Native women without needed physical and psychological support after surviving sexual violence.
