About Missing & Murdered Diné Relatives

The working group is comprised of volunteer members who come from a variety of backgrounds ranging from policy, leadership, social work, public health, epidemiology, injury prevention, students, and participating colleges.

In the spirit of collaboration, we hope to see you there and look forward to a fruitful discussion. As we move forward in this collective responsibility, we must remember to engage in K’é (family spirit). Our overall goal is to locate our Diné relatives, bring our missing home, and to continue protecting our people and children.
