Arizona Committee On Missing And Murdered Indigenous Women Releases Final Report, Dozens Of Recommendations
The epidemic of missing and murdered indigenous women and girls has become a focal point for many Arizona lawmakers.
Last year, they formed a study committee on it and committed to diving deep into the root causes and systemic challenges that contribute to the problem in the state.
This week, after nearly a year of in-depth research, they came out with their final report — including a long list of recommendations to address what they call a crisis.
The Show spoke about what they found with Arizona Sen. Victoria Steele, who ran unopposed in her race one Tuesday. Steele says from the beginning, the committee took a culturally sensitive approach — and it paid off.
