Zonta Club of Billings
On Sunday, May 15, 2022 the Zonta Club of Billings and The Montana Native Women’s Coalition are partnering with local community experts and leaders to host the third annual MMIP march to recognize the plight of Missing and Murdered Indigenous People (MMIP). This event, called the 2022 MMIP March, is being held in downtown Billings. This public event is for activists, community members, and supporters to raise awareness of and bring justice to the crisis of missing and murdered indigenous people and to ensure this crisis is not forgotten amidst the turbulence of our current events.
The March starts at the Wise Wonders parking lot (2nd Avenue North and North 31st Ave) with prayer and drumming and ends at Skypoint (2nd Avenue North and North Broadway) with speakers, dancing, drumming, and prayer. The event will begin at 1:00 pm and end at 3:00 pm. Speakers will include State government representatives, survivors, and local community advocates — discussing legislation, sharing stories, and providing updates on local, state, and federal action to combat this crisis.
