The Department of Justice has made it a priority to address the disproportionately high rate of violence experienced by Native Americans, and relatedly, the high rate of indigenous persons reported missing. Consistent with Executive Order 14053, Improving Public Safety and Criminal Justice for Native Americans and Addressing the Crisis of Missing or Murdered Indigenous People, the Department of Justice's Executive Office for United States Attorneys (EOUSA) has implemented a program designed to enhance the capacity of United States Attorneys' offices (USAOs) with Indian country responsibilities to help prevent and respond to Missing or Murdered Indigenous Persons (MMIP) matters where jurisdiction exists. The Program, to include the hiring of regional MMIP Assistant United States Attorneys (AUSAs) and MMIP Coordinators, will provide experienced and specialized resources to USAOs in combatting MMIP issues, including assistance in addressing unresolved cases and crimes that are precursors to MMIP issues. This webinar will discuss EOUSA's MMIP Program and also the work of The Native American Outreach Services Liaison, a position that was created as part of Executive Order 14053.

This 60 minute webinar is for tribal leaders and federal, state and tribal criminal justice and social service professionals working in or with tribal communities. Faculty for the webinar will be The Native American Outreach Services Liaison and EOUSA's MMIP Regional Outreach Program Coordinator. There will be no CLE offered.
