The Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women (MMIW) State Legislative Tracker is a navigational database designed to help you easily search legislation relating to MMIW within your state and across the country. The Tracker is a continuation of the MMIW Monthly Legislative Summary, previously released as part of our monthly legislative update. Now in the form of a navigational database, we hope that this tool will be useful for state and local legislators, advocates, grassroots leaders, community members, and allies. Currently there are over 30 pieces of legislation moving through the process or already signed into law within this legislative session.
The MMIW State Legislative Tracker is an educational policy resource, compiling current legislation (2020-2022) at the state level focused on addressing the crisis of MMIW. Included are summaries of the legislation, its status, links to relevant news articles, and more. Note: This resource does not promote or advocate any specific MMIW legislation, nor does it provide analysis of MMIW legislative proposals.
