MADISON, Wis. – Attorney General Josh Kaul is calling attention to the issue of missing and murdered indigenous women and girls in Wisconsin on Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women Awareness Day. The day is a reminder to help combat the abduction, homicide, violence and trafficking of indigenous women.
“By shining a spotlight on the issue of missing and murdered indigenous women, we can spur a stronger federal and state response,” said Attorney General Kaul. “In partnership with law enforcement agencies across the state, including tribal law enforcement agencies, the Wisconsin Department of Justice continues to work to prevent violence in our communities and protect the safety and security of all Wisconsinites.”
