Data for Indigenous Justice (DIJ) reclaims and stewards missing and murdered Indigenous women, girls, and two-spirited people (MMIWG2S) data for Alaska. DIJ visions people living in safety while thriving. The decolonization of data and data sovereignty are key steps towards justice for Indigenous women, girls, and two-spirited people from going missing and/or being murdered.
The April session of Hot Topics in Practice will share how organizations can approach decolonizing data in an effort to address the issue of missing and murdered Indigenous women, girls, and two-spirited people (MMIWG2S).
