Join Snohomish County Indivisible, Indivisible Skagit, and Indivisible Whidbey, in addition to other members of the community for an exclusive local screening of the important 2021 documentary, “Somebody’s Daughter.” The issue of Missing and Murdered Indigenous women (MMIW) has grown into an epidemic throughout the US and Canada. Women and girls have become a target for predators who are predominantly white men. In addition, the failure of law enforcement to bring justice to these women and girls, in addition to their friends and families only furthers the harm done to them. According to the Urban Indian Health Institute division of the Seattle Indian Health Board, “Washington State rated second-highest in the Nation in urban centers and Seattle rated first among cities nation-wide for MMIWG cases with Tacoma rating 7th. First screening 11:00 am. Second screening 2:00 pm, followed by a panel discussion. (See list of panelists below.)
