Message of Resilience: Running for Missing & Murdered Indigenous Women
Join Rosalie Fish, as she describes her personal experiences with both racialized and genderized violence, as well as the ongoing crisis of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women (MMIW) and the severity of impacts that occur in Washington state. In her talk, she will cover her struggles with mental health, the legislative and social issues that contribute to the erasure of Indigenous women, as well as a call to action to let participants know how they can actively contribute to combating the MMIW crisis. Finally, Rosalie will walk the audience through her own story and how and why she became an advocate at the age of eighteen.
