AG Kaul Recognizes Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women Awareness Day

May 5 2022

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.


“The importance of today can’t be overstated,” said Attorney General Josh Kaul. “We must remember those indigenous people lost to murder as well as those who remain missing, praying for peace for them and their families. We center our work on this important topic around them.”


In July of 2020, Attorney General Kaul announced the launching of the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women Task Force, a partnership with Wisconsin Department of Justice and Indigenous communities to address and hopefully prevent future cases of missing and murdered Indigenous women in Wisconsin. More information about the task force and resources for communities can be found here:
