Thank you providing missing persons information to WomenSpirit Coalition. We are committed to protecting indigenous women and their families and this information will be treated with the utmost respect and consideration.

About our project

Indigenous women and children go missing at alarming rates. Despite the efforts of advocates, families and tribal nations, there is still a gap in reliable data about how many of our relatives are missing.  By reporting this information to WSC, you are helping to bridge this gap in Washington State. Sharing this data with law enforcement helps departments understand the scope of the problem and helps allocate resources.  Thank you for working with us as we address this epidemic.
