Spotlight: Native Justice Coalition

From “The Native Justice Coalition was formed in 2016 with the intent of being a platform for healing, social, and racial justice for all Native American people.  Our goal is to provide a safe and nurturing platform for Native people based in an anti-oppression framework.”

Title Track partnered with the Native Justice Coalition in the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic on Support for Native Elders to raise over $15,000 supporting elder meal programs for the Little Traverse Bay Band of Odawa Indians, the Grand Traverse Band of Ottawa and Chippewa Indians, and the Little River Band of Ottawa Indians.

Join the Native Justice Coalition during their MMIWG2S Month of Action & Healing with events happening throughout May. NJC officially launched their Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women, Girls and Two-Spirit People (MMIWG2S) in August 2019 which “addresses this ongoing violence and continued genocide that affects Native women, girls, and Two-Spirits across the US and Canada.”
