Native American women face the highest rates of violence, injustice, and discrimination in the United States, and they have been fighting for equality and rights for more that 500 years


Hey Kevin,

Native American women face the highest rates of violence, injustice, and discrimination in the United States, and they have been fighting for equality and rights for more that 500 years.

Now, their movement is having a moment. From the Standing Rock protests to the Native Nations March in Washington, D.C., this week, Native women are rising up.

In the first in-depth report of its kind, Global Citizen goes beyond the protests lines to explore the origins of the new movement, examining the towering challenges that Native American girls are facing and how they’re overcoming.

From school girls to young women, sex trafficking survivors to medical students, we discovered why they fight — they fight for their future.

Read their stories. Listen to their passion and wisdom for fighting for justice. And be inspired by the fact that 2017 will be the year that #NativeGirlsRise.

Thanks for doing what you do,
Global Citizen
