This is it – act NOW to pass the Tribal Law and Order Act

Two Native American women were gang-raped by three non-Native men in Oklahoma. Because they were forced to wear blindfolds, however, support workers were concerned that the women would be unable to say whether the rapes took place on federal, state or tribal land. Because of jurisdictional complexities and the uncertainty of the locations of these crimes, the women may never see justice served.

It is time to help make a difference in the lives of Native American and Alaska Native women and put an end to the sexual violence that Native women face at a rate that is 2.5 times greater than that of women in the U.S. in general. Passage of the Tribal Law and Order Act will help to do just that.

The Tribal Law and Order Act, attached as an amendment to H.R. 725, is now up for a full floor vote in the House. WHEN it passes, the legislation will go straight to the President to be signed into law.

YOU can make a difference!

TAKE ACTION now and send a letter of support urging your Representative to vote for H.R. 725 with Tribal Law and Order provisions attached, when the bill hits the House floor this week!

  1. The existence of many states in the Union, including the state of Texas, where I am currently located, is only possible due to Indian Removal programs. It therefore seems that the House is morally obligated to pass H.R. 725.

  2. After reading this report, I wonder: the status of women in America is almost the same as in Pakistan!?! "I escaped death but she was killed," this brave woman's blog — http://theterrorland.blogspot.com — and your report seem telling almost the same story!!

  9. Sir,
    It is expedient that action should be taken immediately to stop sexual violence against Native American women, even every other women!
    Anticipating your immediate response.
