Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

DULUTH, MN - Hundreds draped in red hit the streets in downtown Duluth Friday to bring awareness to the invisible epidemic of 'Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women'.

Family and friends of those impacted by this epidemic of violence, along with many community members hit the streets to raise their voices in remembrance of those lost and to try to stop it from happening to anyone else.

Advocates originally started the event because they didn't think anyone was listening to their fears over the growing number of cases against women in the Native community.

Survivors and families directly impacted by the violence lead the march.

I have lived my entire life in Maine, just North of Portland in the town of Freeport. I studied Meteorology at Plymouth State University in New Hampshire and minored in Mathematics. I have been interested in Meteorology since I was about 5 years old. I played hockey until college and I played baseball throughout my time at PSU. So far I have loved the Duluth area and I’m excited for lots of snow and -60 degree windchills.
