The Challenges of Resolving MMIW, and the Trafficking of Native Women and Children

Human Trafficking and Migration Initiative’s 2020 Virtual Summit

All Day
Courtney Hillebrecht,
Congresswoman Debra Anne Haaland, the first Native U.S. Congresswoman, grew up in a military family; her father was a 30-year combat Marine who was awarded the Silver Star Medal for saving six lives during Vietnam, and her mother is a Navy veteran who was a federal employee for 25 years in Indian education.

As a single mother, she volunteered at her daughter’s pre-school in order to afford an early childhood education. She struggled to put herself through college, earning degrees from the University of New Mexico and UNM Law School.
