Missing & Murdered Diné Relatives at a Glance

Who We Are

We are a dynamic team tasked with developing a framework for a proposed Missing & Murdered Diné Relatives data institute and to create a missing persons community action toolkit to empower Navajo communities to be proactive in prevention, awareness, and mobilization to recover missing relatives and provide support to families of MMDR.

We partner with several community stakeholders to hold community forums to reach out to Navajo families and understand the scope of the missing and murdered crisis.

Missing Persons Community Action Toolkit

Action and Mobilization

COMING SOON: The purpose of the the MMDR Missing Persons Community Action Toolkit is to aid families through the process of locating a missing relative, how to work with law enforcement, mobilize a community search/rescue with emergency management agencies, and to improve communication between all the involved parties. The ultimate goal is to bring our relatives home!
