Recording of TOR Webinar: Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women. This event took place on August 25th, 2021.
Featuring our special guest speaker: Carolyn DeFord (Puyallup, Nisqually, Cowlitz) Carolyn DeFord is Puyallup, Nisqually, Cowlitz and mixed Pasted (settler) descendancy.
She currently works for the Puyallup Tribe’s Community Domestic Violence Advocacy Program, where she supports program goals to address violence and abuse impacting the community.
These important issues partnered with personal experience and being the daughter of a long term missing person have inspired her to raise awareness for missing and murdered Indigenous people, prevention, and the healing power of culture.
In 2016, in an effort to bridge gaps in media, services, and awareness, Carolyn created Missing and Murdered Native Americans; a grassroots volunteer organization focused on supporting families, awareness, prevention and advocacy.
